No such word as close, its shut.

So shut and clip your part 3 lip.





Nice neighbour te he




Now I'll admit to having struggled to remember, but I'm sure it was 'close and clip the lower lid' since 'shut' sounded like 'shoot'. And 'closing down bulkheads' etc.

Standing by for confirmation, then I'll sign off YOUR Pt III book!



Shhhhhhhh - neighbour as in ARRSE...........

Top Stop is quite correct! It's was always "shut" as opposed to "close" in the days of we diesel dinosaurs. I do recall one instance however, when a Middie we had onboard for what would now becalled work experience, (whom had previously been bollocked for using the word "close") made the classsic pipe "Attack team shut up"!

But above the waves without the smell of diesel it was always 'Close all scuttles and screen doors' for entering harbour.

Don't think there is any use in bandying adjectives, after the "collision " alarm sounds Jack is a tad too occupied closing or shutting anything with a red flash on it rather than discussing "Close or Shut ".

There are probably a few different terms used for the same drills between the surface fleet and the sleek black messengers of death below, as in “ooh look a submarine” and “target bears that”

It is obvioulsy an upper deck screen door, and as such is therefore 'closed' along, with hatches and red openings. Not having such things in black tubes, you couldn't be expected to know...

Not, so. Ships "close down to Zulu Alpha", and "standby for collision forward, close all red openings."
You also close breakers, but that's a different subject.

Maybe it's a submariner thing??

My time in boats the word was always shut. Use closed or close and shit would fall upon you from a great height
