There were more swap drafts organised in that café than anything Navy News could offer. Always remember Collingrad parade ground turning into a massive coach park on friday afternoons.

Boogie...boxes... ?
Bite shield up.....

For our younger readers and Guzzler. Boogie boxes were the 80s RN terminology for a Walkman tape device for listening to music and while away the long hours.... of a coach journey or submarine patrol. I used to get lots of tins for supplying the batteries!

Bite shield to stow.

There used to be anything up to 30 coaches pulling into Bridport around 0300, that cafe must have been a gold mine at the time. You didn't need a ticket to get back, slip the driver five bob and you could sit on the floor. The memories of doing 80 along the then single carriageway A27 back in the 1960's still haunts me.
