Do you hear there?

On patrol, deep and middle of the night.

'Do you here there, the fire is out, the fire is out.'

The Skipper and a lot of other people were a bit miffed, to say the least! Turned out it was 'only' a small lagging fire.............. hardly worth mentioning - obviously!

Just re-reading this and another sprang to mind that occurred on a T boat I was on.

Said boat was on a workup with CSST (now FOST) were all around, I was on watch aft when the nasty men came through the tunnel and disappeared down the donk shop, 2 minutes later, pipe from the donk shop

"Stop the shaft, stop the shaft, man trapped on the shaft"

EOOD " which side"

Donk shop " port..stbd..port..stbd..port"

CSST ended the exercise as everyone was pissing themselves laughing.

Ha ha. Different ships, different tallies. Heard mine, quoted verbatim on USS Damato in Hong Kong 1964. Probably as many variations on this as there were ships in th US Navy. Jack was an amateur as anything other than what was in the Seamans' Manual was worth a few days 9s. :confused:

Cash officer on HMS Opportune before every jolly, "Do you here there, there will be an interdenominational cheque cashing in the ships office in five minutes time, all are welcome!"
