Do you hear there?

A certain cox'n I served with (no names but he was known as the "alligator" but that's another dit) who made the full main broadcast pipe " the submarine will be visiting the states next trip, all ships company are to ensure they have an in date birth certificate".

I've allegedly heard of people who served with people who heard pipes along the lines of 'Do You Hear there, Jack Blair menswear, yesterdays fashion at tomorrows prices is now on the dockside' or some such stuff like that...
Bosun's mate on the bridge tried to pipe," DWEO contact the bridge."
Just as he spoke, the sound-powered phone activated right next to the microphone so what came out sounded like,
"Dee-wee-oh-wee-oh-wee-oh-wee-oh-wee-oh-wee-oh, contact the bridge."

Warrant Officer Officer, Wardroom!
Gen sit as he was a WO On Invinc and when I first met him he was a CPO!
Never heard him piped as a Chief Officer though, that would have been good. :)

From the Jackspeak book: A pipe for some pongo onboard ship, "Corporal-of-the-horse, gangway at the gallop!"

Personally: "D'ya hear there, Fred Dibnah has finally passed his RNFT! That is all" the fat knacker had joined before RNFT's were compulsory and the only reason he'd finally passed one was because it was the first time he'd been allowed to do the Rockport Walk instead of the mile and half or bleep test!

"Anybody wishing to play football for the ship's company, contact Ch Wednesday!"

"Duty SA, 141"

"We are now crossing the equator, anybody wishing to see the buoys that mark this line to the upper deck" and then wait to see how many people rock up with cameras!
