    Come on then some one tell me the Planesman what rate was he, yep OK he was an A/B (or perhaps a L/S didn't see his left arm!!) But what specialisation was he? He had a picture of a spiders web on his arm!!

    Sorry, but the "Mean Machine" was HMS COURAGEOUS, named
    after the Burt reynolds American Football movie of the 70's I believe.

    Anway, was on both of them-they black f**kers so shall not lose
    any sleep over missing the documentary.

    Think I'll e-mail the producer and put him straight...taking liberties there.

    Having watched the video the same bloke is in the Soundroom.(was he the only one with a clean shirt).He has a crown above the thing that looks like a spiders web which would make him a senior rate.As the filming was clearly done in harbour they could have co-opted anyone to do the filming so is there anybody out there who can clear this up once and for all.
