Just a moan rearly, I was 17 and a half when I was drafted to 845 Squadron on the Bulwalk in '67 (we flew out to Singers via a Crab Air Britania) went into 3E2 Mess, Killick of the mess was a 3 Badger, name of "Smith", he used to put my name on the Naaffi Beer List but wouldn't let me have any, he used to have it for himself, bastard?

surely the canman/LHOM could not account for a 17yo's beer? i was on F169 as a junior and dont remember being entitled to chit, but 'what got chitted in the mess stayed in the mess'. officially i couldn't drink, so the LHOM couldnt draw my beer from the CANMAN, and the mess was in the clear. Is my brain faddled from too much Piper, or do i recollect correct?

Hermes (Fixed wing days) 5Ezoo Greenies mess - Beer bosun put all names on the list and bought it himself - selling it on to you on request with a extra 3d - 2d for the mess fund - 1d for him for doing the job - He later in life became the landlord of the Swan in Sidmouth - Yes - if you were UA (under age i.e. under 20) you did not go in the mess at tot time.

They coudnt officaly account for him. But depends how much of a blind eye people are turning. A lot of peoples opinion is if your old enough to die for queen and country your old enough to have a few beers first
