We all have our favorite country when deployed, my question to you is;

Which ones hold the best times or run ashores?

For me I will be typical and say Gib, although Kiel was a good run (might be to do with the beer festival!).

Edited: Have to say the 'donkey's flipflop' is welcoming. Well after I figured out that is not it's real name grrrrrrr................easyyyyyyyy

My vote goes to Singapore in the mid to late sixties. Start in the London Bar in Neesoon then 'fast black' to the Brit Club and end up in Bugis Street shouting for Abdul. Always plenty of Septics to take the mick out of during their R'n R from 'Nam.

Has to be USA, I love the way our American friends look after us when we visit. On 1 visit, I had 2 women fighting over who was going to take me home, I ended up with both (on different night unfortuanatley). On another visit, one of my oppo's borrowed some money from one of the american lads and told him that if he came to the ship the next day and ask for "Harry Skinters" he would gladly return the borrowed money, cheers easy

Can't beat Key West followed 48 hrs later by New Orleans. FANTASTIC 8O

Mind you, Murmansk (Russia) was a real surprise. Not a great city but I haven't met nicer people anywhere in the world - cold though!

Remember the old favourite

Septic "Why aren't you guys in Vietnam?"

Jack "The Vietcong are doing OK without us."

Worked everytime

There is only one place left on this planet for a real old style matelots run ashore, even jenny should find something for herself. Male, Female,
Ladyboy, cheap booze, cheap big eats, cheap bar fines ( you will know what I mean if you have been.) its all in Thailand. Phuket is an excellent run ashore, Pattaya is even better. For all those who never made it there then you cannot be classed as having had a full commision and the RN did not make a real man / woman of you. End of Dit.

Do the clearance divers get to travel around... I know they go over to the med, or far east to practise their war-time-role.. But after training, or are they more based in UK..

thanks,

With the demise of the Ships diver adqual, I would imagine the oppertunities for the 3 diving groups to get deployed foriegn will increase. Bear in mind tho, that much of the underwater engineering tasking(hull survey/blanking/poker guage readings) now gets done by civvy contractors. If a ship needs diving/UE support in the far flung, but they are in a reasonably well equipped port, then employing local civvy contractors may well be the cheapest option.
