Fearless - Spring 1971

Discussion in 'The Fleet Air Arm' started by mechanicnog, Jan 2, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Looking at the stats of the contributers to RR it seems as if there could well be some who served in Fearless in 1970.

    If so, I would be very interested to know if they still have a copy of "The Wessex Gasette" which I produced on behalf of the 845 detachment.

    In the first of the three issues produced I printed an ode to the Wessex. The old memory is failing a bit and I seem to get a lot of "Senior moments" therefore I can only remember bits of the song. The first verse went something like:-

    Four blades on my wessex,
    And I'm just flying along
    My ASE is running free,
    The choppy sea don't bother me
    As I'm singing the Wessex song

    The chorus included:-

    Singing, down a bit down a bit, keep the stick tight
    I'l be back in the wardroom tonight
    Left a bit, left a bit, hovering well
    Just can't wait for the after lift bell!

    The remaimng verses are now lost in the depths of time, but the final verse went:-

    No blades on my Wessex and I'm not flying along

    On second thoughts perhaps it's best left in the past - What do the great unwashed masses think?
