1984 Putney CID Office Annual General Report.

"Dress and Appearance: Rated "D": Detective Constable H*** shows scant regard for Houte Couture:"

Scruffy bastard then am I Guv.



PS I remained true to D/E Boats in dress and cleanliness

How about "fully conversant with modern social habits" for one of my Division discharged for using drugs! If it had happened today he would be told not to do it again & get to keep his career!
His sole aim in lif seems to be to empty his in tray as fast as possible so that he can abuse his privilege of holding a blue card by drinking excessively ashore. Although he has not been absent without leave he has been close on occasions.

All underlined in red which I was very proud of.


ooooo red under-lining! I was't lucky enough to join while this was still in use but it certainly draws the eye whenever I am having a flick through someones docs.
1. "Since my last report, this employee has reached rock-bottom and has started to dig."

2. "I would not allow this employee to breed."

4. "Works well when under constant supervision and cornered like a rat in a trap."

5. "When she opens her mouth, it seems that it is only to change feet."

16. "He would argue with a signpost."

17. "He brings a lot of joy whenever he leaves the room."

18. "When his IQ reaches 50, he should sell."

19. "If you see two people talking and one looks bored, he's the other one."

Apologies if this is a ZDK:

Midshipman F started at the bottom and has stayed there.

An aptitude test showed that this recruit's only real aptitude is for taking aptitude tests.

Midshipman D breezes through life in an untroubled manner. I am not sure whether it is indifference or inexperience that puts him beyond the reach of anxiety.

This Leading Stoker is suffering from bottle fatigue.

The Buffer usually drinks doubles - and then sees the same way.

If a mosquito bit my MEO, it would probably die of alcohol poisoning.

I wish this officer would understand that nought is a mark.

As Navigator's Yeoman he is like a lighthouse in a desert - brilliant but useless.

Socially, this young helicopter pilot is partial to hell-raising stag parties - but usually knows where to draw the line, or, at worst, who to apologise to the following day.

The Senior Engineering Officer believes that only a certain number of heartbeats have been allotted to him, and is reluctant to use any of them up on the sports field.

The Gunnery Officer has had a series of chest infections; he is so full of antibiotics that every time he sneezes, he cures a dozen people.

With regards to hard work, this Able Seaman has a notion - but very little motion.

Petty Officer K knows very little, but knows it very fluently.

Leading Seaman A often lets his mind go blank, but then forgets to turn off the sound.

This Midshipman has the wisdom of youth, and the energy of old age.

I object to the fact that this Medical Officer has used my ship to carry his genitals from port to port, and the other members of the Wardroom to carry him from bar to bar.

This sailor is something of a contact man - all 'con' and no 'tact'.

The Padre is a small, lithe man who slides about the place in a rather oily fashion.

My most fave one was from 814 NAS. My DO wrote "LWTR ****** is garrolous by nature". i must have looked puzzled when I read it cos he immediately translated it into language I could understand. He said "it means your a gobshite"

Happy Days
Slightly off topic, but when I first joined my current employer back in 1985 I've never forgotten going into the then Librarian's Office where his desk was perched on a platform a foot off the ground and I was invited to sit on a low sofa below! He then said:

'It's a great priviledge for people like you to be working here.'

He was alluding to that fact that I was educated at a state comprehensive school and hadn't read Greats or similar at Oxbridge! During my tour of my new workplace my guide pointed out the two members of staff who'd NOT been educated at Oxbridge! I just couldn't believe people still had those kinds of attitudes in 1985! 8O :roll: :lol:

Like that, I've had garrolous in one of mine. Didn't want my DO to think I was uneducated so didn't ask what it meant but I had a pretty good idea!!!
My final report when I left the RN in 1987 was written by my DO in 2 minutes and under duress before I finally departed. It read
Petty Officer C**** is an all round good egg, snappy dresser and fun to be with at parties".
I actually had to present that to my new employers, the police, on joining!
REM(A) R......s is too jovial.
Underlined in red.
Proud of that one, as I said to my D.O. what would you rather a happy matelot or a sad one?

Keen conscientious operator well above average and can be relied upon in all situations on board, recommended for higher rate.

Once ashore looses all sense of responsibility, a victim of the demon alcohol.

I've been T Total for about fifteen years now, probably finished up an admiral if I didn't like the grog :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Can't vouch for it's veracity, but back in the good old days of the 'Tot', a certain well known Rum Rat ( not me!) had the write up-- am =idiot, pm gibbering idiot.
