BBC: "Inside HMS Artful"

Thanks Sol.
One little question. Do they really wear Dolphins on their Ovies nowadays other than when the media come to call?

Have to admit the dolphins on 4's look gash, it would have been better if they were blue on white, the same as branch badges IMO.
 
4's? Fcking hell, how things have changed. Dolphins, Queen's legs, whatever, if you have it flaunt it, eh?

Bomber pins on 3's looks gash IMO. Not that I object to the bomber pin in principle, but it is issued in lieu of a medal to recognise OP RELENTLESS and therefore goes against the standard protocol for medal wearing. Next thing you know we'll be wearing medal ribbons on 3's like the RAN, RCN, RNZN and USN.

Basically once you've done 30 days of patrol on a bomber you get a silver badge and once you've done 20 patrols you get a gold badge. Meant to be something to wear cos submariners don't get a medal for being on patrol.

Dear god, we get more like the yanks every day. Well thats something I won't be retrospectively asking for! Who's bright idea was that then, as if a bit of tin could compensate for the bomber routine and lifestyle!

At least we seem to have sh*tcanned the idea of SURFLOT people wearing the gash SURFLOT symbol as a badge. For now....

The dolphins on 4s is dependant on skipper at the moment. That might be against what the regs say but thats the way its working.

Buggered if I can find it, because I can't remember what 23 it was, but a couple of weeks ago I saw a picture of 3 guys on the flight deck in 3's doing exactly that. The ribbons were presumably the ones worn on bush jackets.

I think officers do that in tropics. Just a guess.

I have seen someone wearing green/black kissing Kippers on his green cs95, that looked very odd.
