  1. Hi all.

    Excited though :)

  2. Enjoy it all.
  3. Be thinking of you !!! Mine 17 year old on HMS Victorious ships company, took me 3 months to get my bearings lol, and when we went to sea and berthed the other way round !!! I was disorientated ;-P

  4. I joined HMS EAGLE in Singapore (1965), ship sailed just after I embarked.
    On secure I showered and got changed into my Civies:confused4:, felt such a cnt, nobody had told me that night clothing was to be worn at sea, after all I had just finished doing three years at a Naval Air Station where uniform was only worn for work, duties and divisions. :shock:

  5. Dont ditch gash at flying stations! :grin:
  6. First draft as a wee sprog Wafu, 18 hour flight to Singapore to join the Albion!!!

    With a ten bob note in me pocket and still got pissed and visited the street first night!

    Enjoy it bud.
  7. My advice. Keep your gob shut, listen more than talk. I you borrow something return it cleaner than when you borrowed it. Don't bum fags,booze or money.
    Don't shag the splits.
    Don't complain.
    Be helpful and cheerful.
    Don't stare at other lads cocks when using the showers.
    That should get you started.

  9. On my first draft I went to loads of places but cant remember most, cos as soon as I hit shore I got pissed, I dont have any pics cos I had no camera, thats two things I'd do differently, the rest as per Romanys list
  10. The first one in the mess who gobs off about how shite it is/ this is the way we do this/any snags come and see me first etc etc is usually the mess bell end and wants a friend.

    Unless it's the killick of the mess, but he still may be the mess bell end.

    Listen more than you talk, be yourself and enjoy. Come out of your shell when you know where you stand in the mess, task book done hopefully.
