Chief is god posters

Discussion in 'Diamond Lil's' started by PROPMAN, Jul 4, 2010.

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. Does anyone remember the cartoon poster depicting a chief's status in the RN, which started at the bottom with a midshipman saying choo choo and ended with a chief conversing with god, chewing bullets etc etc.
    There used to be one in almost every chief stokers office.
    Does anyone have a digital copy of one or know the full outline of the ranks and their achievements.

    I know there are a few old, bold and wise who frequent this particular part of the forum, so surely someone must remember it.

    Cheers

    Still looking on the Devil's Lantern for you, but in the meantime I found this, which reflects what your service will become if every newbie on this site finally gets in.
     
  3. Chain of Command

    Is more powerful than an express locomotive,
    Faster than a speeding bullet,
    Walks on water.
    Gives policy to GOD

    CAPTAIN
    Leaps short buildings with a single bound,
    Is more powerful than a shunting engine,
    As fast as a speeding bullet,
    Walks on water if the sea is calm.
    Talks with GOD.

    COMMANDER
    Leaps short buildings with a running start,
    Is almost as powerful as a shunting engine,
    And slower than a speeding bullet,

    LIEUTENANT

    Has been heard to say “Oh God!â€

    LIEUTENANT (SUB LIEUTENANT)

    MIDSHIPMAN (CADET or UPPER YARDSMAN)

    (Wets himself with a Water Pistol)
    Plays in puddles.
    Mumbles to Himself.

    CHIEF PETTY OFFICER
    Lifts buildings and walks under them,
    Kicks locomotives off the tracks,
    Catches speeding bullets in his teeth and eats them,
    Freezes water with a single glance.
    He is GOD.

  5. Sol - my admiration increases daily. Not only for your effortless ability to seek and display the answers to the flimsiest of questions, but also to rise above the tacky underbelly of 'Lils' and retain your purity. What was your phone number again -I seem to have mislaid the pm.

    Similar to the Army story of the old General on his death-bed who says to his priest "You promise me that there are no RSMs in Heaven, I always got a hard time from my RSM." The priest assured him that there were no RSMs in Heaven.

    The General duly passed away and was signing in at the Pearly Gates he spots a man in No2 dress, Sam Brown with a pace stick. He turns to St Peter as says "I was assured that there were no RSMs in Heaven". St Pete says it was OK "That is not an RSM, it is just God, who wishes he was an RSM!!"
     
  10. Have to agree with you there Wrecckerl, Happy day`s :D
     
  11. Bloody Chiefs....




    cat, meet pigeons...
     
  12. Conversely...........

    What is an Officer? - An Oficer is one who stands at the head.

    What is a Chief? - A chief is one who takes charge.

    What is petty? - Petty means insignificant.

    Waht is a Chief Petty Officer? - A slob in charge of the heads.
     
  13. I have a copy of that poster and if you want a copy, let me know via PM with your email addy and I will scan it in and send to you.

    At the bottom it does say "CRS YOUNG" he is God, but I am sure you could edit that out easily enough.

  17. Arrived and has been edited to suit.

    Many thanks
     
  18. Not wanting to appear pedantic here Brigham, but, the Poster says, Chief Petty Officer, not Chief Radio Supervisor. I am sure if it applied to that you'd called a Chief Petty Officer Radio Operator.

    You'll be calling the Master at Arms a Chief Petty Officer Regulator next.

    Cheers
     
  19. To be honest, that's what they are :wink:

    Standing by for incoming from SPB :)
     
  20. Chiefs smell of wee and wear grey Y fronts.

    Fuck the lot of you and your fucking meat raffles.
