Ok, we have all been played with Easys/bites!

I remember joining my 1st ship, within a few weeks I was standing on my 1st BM watch. The 2 LSM's were always trying to get me on bites, all the frigging time!

One afternoon, one of them approached me. " Can you please pipe,
Duty WE to the exorset mag".

Moi being the brand new sprog picked up the broadcast and was about to pipe until I realised that 22's don't have exorset!

I was played when I first joined with;

'Can you go to the SC and ask for a long stand/weight'

'Can you go to the buffer's shack and ask for a glass hammer'

Wasn't long till I was playing the new members! What are the best bites you have heard or tried?
 
Not really a bite,true story ,CabledeckBulwark 79, killick Fishead,sent one of his boys to the quarterdeck to get a Maul,boy came back with all quarterdeck hands.

I remember on my first ship being asked to do Fog Watch - that seemed plausable! What wasn't so plausable (now) was standing on the bridge wing in the beautiful summers day pointing out any "fog patches" that I saw. Got a good clear view of the ships helicopter taking a photo of me miles away though!

Anya, whilst me T22s did have Exocet, none would have had an Exocet mag.

I had a good easy today. One of the lads walked into the workshop wth a large set of pipecutters over his shoulder.
"What that you,ve got there" says I
"Pipecu...........f~ck"
If you are in earshot of a good easy, its considered polite to intone the word EASY in order to remind the victim of his predicament. Research conducted on a sister site suggests that in the army an easy is referred to as a Wah!
 
Fog Watch... interesting. I can remember that when I was told that I was on the Dog Watch as a Baby RO, despite all that training I was momentarily confused and thought, as we were moored in Gib, that I was supposed to look out for stray dogs attempting to board ship. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

The best one I've seen is electricity bills - sticking a bill knocked up on Navystar with the ship's crest etc on it in someone's cabin. Then, if they don't bite, one of the leccy's taking the fuse out for his cabin and sticking another note in the cabin saying the electricity's been cut off for non payment. Poor chap in question got very strange looks when he turned up in the ship's office asking if he could pay his electricity bill.

On minesweepers there was always the job of Oropesa jockey; for the benefit of those not privileged enough to have served on MCMVs, the Oropesa floats are those funny torpedo looking thingies towards the back of that deck that's in place of the flight deck! :)

The role of the Oropesa jockey is simply to ride the Oropesa float (dangerous job attracts hazardous duty pay, if you can get the Skipper to approve the request) to ensure that the kites and / or depressors are true in the water. Victim is usually kitted out in dry-bag, HDLJ, etc and in some cases even winched onto the Oropesa float prior to its immersion.

On joining 707 NAS as a baby feild training Tiff, there were attempts to send me to stores to get a Sky Hook, and to the Inflam store to get some K9P!
