I have checked my bugle call reference (The Gunnery Pocket Book, B.R. 224/45) which does indeed contains the following for Flying Stations:



Unfortunately, since this book was issued in 1945 before rotary wing aviation became a general feature in the fleet it doesn't contain the answer to your senior moment.

There is nothing in the BR13 (Buglers Handbook) to denote the addition of G's to the Flying Stations call, this may have been something that was added locally, i.e. just on your ship/station??
Thanks it was on Hms Victorious :wink: :wink:

You sure it wasn't "HMS Victorian" since bugle calls or the bosun's call were used other than ceremonially?!

Scouse we were in front of you on the jetty, think it was south slip or south railway, Aurora.
Sunday afternoon, during leave period, Safeguard, safeguard , safeguard,
Fire fire, fire, fire on the Vic fire and.........I was fighting the fire for two days boundary cooling, we lost the boundary twice.

Footnote, I was In the Patrol that went to Doncaster to fetch the little arsonist scrote back who started it, I will never forget him as he had the same surname as me.
It killed the ship did it not? :twisted:

Small world I was on watch on the gangway on Minerva when it started. Had one stint at tackling the fire. The glift deck polish was melting into little balls and exploding with the heat . Sad day
