    I'm pretty Sure that Max got the boot years ago, Health & Hygiene plus the move of the main gate saw to the burger demise.

    Spookily enough, all on base non-naafi related food outlets seem to have disappeared over the past couple of years. Any relationship betwen these events and the onset of PAYD is entirely coincidental I'm sure.

    Cheif Tiff. Are you mixing Max up with "Piss Fingers"? He used to park in Pyle Lane, which was a public highway to the Westlands Hangar, now 848. Max used to be behind Lloyds Bank opposite the Heron Club. Now all long gone. Mind you, thinking of it, Max wasn't particularly hygenic either...........

    The memory of at least one bout of food poisoning would make me think you're right mate. I do remember how he would nip out behind his van in the middle of cutting your burger bun, shake himself off then continue as if nothing happened, it didn't seem to matter when you'd had a skinfull :pukel:

    forgot about pissy fingers, was funny seeing him go for a piss turn the water tank on & pretend to wash his hands in boiling water :)
     
  9. Re: chip van at YL

    I seem to remember Max being beside the car club

    And 'pissy fingers' being in a converted old 'Commer Van'

    Tell that to the young lads today and they just wont believe you!!!
     
  10. Re: chip van at YL

    so what do the lads do now, bring a takeaway with them after a run ashore or do they not do that either reading some posts - lol

    Another favourite was the chinky van that was outside the club at Portland.

    If we are talking Portland..................

    Then a 'Tommy's Whopper or schwartzenigger-burger' was hard to beat!

    the galley provides snacks under the pay as you dine out of normal mealtimes, and there is snack place in the junior rates bar/automat.
