Bloody crabs

Fcuk, you're digging deep for crap aren't you - where are you going with this one and how much sh!t are you looking for now. I'd suggest you get back in the gravy pot or are you still in the carton in powder form??

Digging deep for crap-not quite sure what that means--but I am suggesting it looks as if history is repeating itself.
QE's wardroom will have its fair share of US Marine Officers stewards on its first venture to the far east in any event. Where the RAF batmen/women will fit in is anyone's guess.
 
Will history be repeating itself in QE's wardroom?

Norman should feel uncomfortable, if not ashamed even, to have his attention drawn to his earlier thread with the very same-same title which was posted quite recently on the 16th November last:


NB the usual boring Normanesque MO of deleting his c/s which became "Deleted 103788".



On topic but far more entertaining than pre-War Wardrobes for Wardroom Servants may be found at an even earlier RR thread (from 12 years ago & untouched by Norman/Bisto/OXO Etc.) bearing a similar Title at:

https://www.navy-net.co.uk/community/threads/the-bloody-crabs.46922/

Enjoy the gems there, plus the removal of any doubt that Crabs do bite.

I did enjoy that thread. This one?? Hmmmm. Not quite.
 
Latest is that 732 NAS (Hawks) Royal Navy's 'Adversary' squadron based at Culdrose is being disbanded and the role transferring to 100 Squadron RAF.

Another grab from the crabs!!!!

.......plus the removal of any doubt that Crabs do bite.
Actually, technically, they don't. They pinch as they have two large claws used to catch and cut up food. They do however walk side-ways.

Unless you're talking about Pubic Lice aka Crabs which DO bite. They can be removed by using a blue lotion.

Most members of the 100 year experiment aka the Crabs/RAF also bite vigorously at times.

Hope this has helped! :cool:

And you expected different!!!
Crabs and USMC would operate without their own backup!!! Naive to think otherwise!!!
 
Several Threads with the same title/similar titles but I''ve chosen this one as the most recent to draw contributors attention to the following DT reader's 'erksome' comment* posted by a former crab just a few days ago;

1612146157730.png

re: His 'call for Man Overboard' dit is one I had not heard before - Has anyone here ever heard it applied to a walk on the grass at any of Pussers stone frigates???

re: His 'Liberty Ship' - Obviously mistook boat for ship, unless one considers the possibility that HMS MASSIVE ferried her libertymen ashore aboard a Liberty Ship...


*The comment, amongst a few others who know little or nothing of the RN'S 'rich tapestry', followed this DT's article of 26th January




PS - For a few moments I had considered commenting on the above erks comment with a correction but resisted as I felt it more appropriate to let the misguided munchkin remain in ignorant bliss.

I remember being rescued by a sea-boat when I fell into the lawn at Dolphin. Happily it was a warm day, so no risk of hypothermia.

Then I went down to the jetty to wait for a liberty ship......




Liberty ships were a class of cargo ship built in the United States during World War II. Though British in concept, the design was adopted by the United States for its simple, low-cost construction. Mass-produced on an unprecedented scale, the Liberty ship came to symbolize U.S. wartime industrial output.

After I left the mob, I worked in a company with an ex-crab.
He told me the story of matelots (read Wafu's) on a crab base always running out with a life ring, shouting 'man overboard' and throwing it at unsuspecting crabs who walked on the grass outside the RN contingent offices.
@Joint_Force_Harrier should know more.

Not heard it on stone frigate though - there was always some hairy arsed CGI waiting to give you a bollocking if you walked on the grass.
