Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. early 60's[61 I think] whilst at Singapore there was a strong story doing the rounds that a PO wanted a leg over and asked a taxi driver,he took him to his own home and it took a while for it too click!
    Seems quite a few were at it and all had a little butterfly tattooed on the shoulder and they were shipped home in disgrace.
    Now as my memory is hazy[although I do remember the story clearly] was it just one of those tales that abounded in the Far East at that time.Anyone else heard of it.
    Gave us all a good topic of discussion I recall but it may be just the Tiger talking.
  2. So thats why I have a Butterfly Bush in my garden. Must confess I`ve not heard of that one.[​IMG]
  3. I heard the story in 66 and seemingly it had only just happenned. possibly another navy myth
  4. Yeah. Heard it in '65/'66. No-one was ever able to authenticate it though.
    (And we did try!!)

  5. I have also heard this, although second hand from a bootneck who was there in the early 60's. They definately weren't there, neither was Bugis St alas, when I first went there on a pussers grey in the 80's.
