  9. Oh dear, not what I had in mind at all :/
  10. Could anyone please clarify a rumour that i've heard being banded about that we should actually get paid for the time we put into the RNR?

    It would be awfully nice if we did!
  11. Can i help with any other buzzes, rumours, dits, gossip etc , that is what i am here for

  13. Probably !!!!!!!!! :lol:
  14. What can the RNR actually do about some of the posts on here?
  15. Buzz Busted !!

    For wear on civs only, trust me I have one !!
  16. Why do you think "the RNR" want to do anything about the rumours on here ???

    They "as you call them" are not trying to do anything, rumours exist as an integral part of Navy life, always have and always will. COMMARRES do not have any axe to grind against RumRation and have no watching brief going on, In addition they are not,have not and will not ever issue any edict forbidding chat on RR . so chill out and stop being paranoid

    By the way did you here that the RNXS are being brought back , Chatham Dockyard is being opened again. Pompey ships will all move to Chatham.

    All RNR units that closed under options for change are being opened.

    RNR is to have a new fleet of Minesweepers.

    The tot is being reintroduced.

    Female sailors will be called WRNS, Female officers wiill wear blue stripes.

  17. They're called tender units aren't they!!!

    I've been in toooooooo long. Any more full circles for the 3rd rotation????
  18. I like it....

    A great buzz, how about:

    Wrens will be wear stockings, and tights will be banned !!
    :grin: :grin: :grin:
  19. How very dare you! I will so not be allowing you to fondle my fishnets on Saturday and as for that snog ... well ....
  20. oh and i forgot to mention

    CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE KIDS WHO WERE BORN IN THE 1930's 40's, 50's, 60's 70's and 80's !! First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes. Then after that trauma, our baby cribs were covered with bright colored lead-based paints. We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking . As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags. We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle. We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this. We ate cakes, white bread and real butter and drank pop with sugar in it, but we weren't overweight because...... WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!! We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on. No one was able to reach us all day. And we were O.K. We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem. We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 99 channels on cable, no video tape movies, no surround sound, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat rooms..........WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them! We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents. We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever. We made up games with sticks and tennis balls and although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes. We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them! Football teams had trials and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!! The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law! This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever! The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL! And YOU are one of them! CONGRATULATIONS! You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated our lives for our own good. and while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave their parents were. Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it?! PS -The big type is because your eyes are shot at your age.
