Basic hand washing?

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I was going through my kit list and, under general guidance it says I should learn basic hand washing skills. Are there people who make it through the application process but don't know how to use a bit of soap, water and the occasional nail brush or am I missing something?
  2. Hand washing clothes as far as I can gather.
  3. Crap, you're right. That makes a lot more sense and fits the context.
  4. Because of course that is a particularly hard skill to master.
  5. This is the proper way of dhobeying. This is how kit is washed in HMS Raleigh's Dhobey Compartment.

  6. Please note: female nozzers are allowed to use automatic washing machines to dhoby their smalls!
  7. Pussers hard and a deck scrubber, those were the days. I don't suppose the materials used today would stand up to anything but a gentle wash cycle.

    I take it from the photo that the building faced East.
  8. They seem to be bowing down to Mecca!
  9. I believe he's implying the look like praying muslims, what with Mecca being East and all that crap. 8O

    I bet I'm way off

    Fcuking get in :lol:
  10. Eh?

    Vivid imagination there.
  11. Just happen to have travelled a bit and learnt about multi-culturism

  13. Brilliant!

    Eats, shoots and leaves!
  14. One appears to have his arse pointing east 8O 8O 8O
  15. He's an Unorthodox Muslim ;)
  16. It seems perverse to me that sailors wore WHITE trousers for washing. Surely BLUE shorts would have been better? :roll:

    That Pusser for you! :lol:
  17. Why?

    Doesn't blue get wet?
  18. Blue doesn't show the DIRT! Also Pussers Navy Blue Shorts NEVER get wet..... cause they're waterproof on the inside...... :D
  19. Blue makes whites look whiter, ask the old and bold about "blue bags" apart from use in laundry grannies used em for their blue rinse hair doos :?
