Chief is god posters

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.

Chain of Command


ADMIRAL
Leaps tall buildings with a single bound,
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,
Walks on water in indoor swimming pools.
Talks with GOD if a special chit is provided.

LIEUTENANT COMMANDER
Barely clears small huts,
Loses tug-of-war with small engine,
(Wins tug of war with an engine when assisted)
Can fire a speeding bullet,
Swims well.
Is occasionally addressed by GOD

LIEUTENANT
Sometimes clears a garden shed
Loses tug of war with an engine
Has been known to handle a gun
Swims with difficulty
Has been heard to say “Oh God!â€

LIEUTENANT (SUB LIEUTENANT)
Makes high marks when trying to leap over buildings,
Is run over by engines,
Can sometimes handle a gun without injuring himself,
And doggy paddles in water.
Talks to Animals

SUB LIEUTENANT (MIDSHIPMAN)
Runs into buildings,
Recognises engines two out of three times,
Is not issued with ammunition,
Can stay afloat whilst wearing a Mae West.
Talks to Walls.

MIDSHIPMAN (CADET or UPPER YARDSMAN)
Falls over step when trying to enter buildings,
Says ‘Look at the Choo-Choo’,
Only allowed to look at guns,
(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.

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!!"

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.

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.

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.
