Seeing as the officers nicknames thread has popped up got me wondering.

We've all heard the pipe "OOD gangway, Captain approaching" which made wonder, has there ever been a real Captain Approaching?

In the same vein, was there ever a genuine REM Brandt (who may or may not have gone to the paint shop) or a POMEM Granite (who may or may not have gone to the galley)

Anyone know of any genuine comedic combinations? I do know there was a Colonel Pine-Coffin who was in the airborne in WW2, not someone I'd like to stand near when the bullets started flying

Off on a tangent, but....

Shame Capt Pugwash was only for t.v, I've always hoped an ex matelot was the script writer behind the names Roger the Cabin boy, Seaman Stains and Master Bates !

No such luck I’m afraid. The creator and writer, John Ryan, served in the army in Burma during WW2.
