Should have got the Junior's equivalent of the GC! I used to be terrified being forced to perch on the top of the wallbars at school - no way would you have got me clambering round the Devil's Elbow 80ft off the deck, let alone saluting the seagulls 143ft aloft!andym said:Youre not wrong shippers,when i saw it on Blue Peter back in the early 70's just before Grungies was closed i nearly changed my mind about joining up! :grin: :grin: :grin:danny said:all i can say is im glad they dont do that at raleigh
And all he got was a silver Crown!Should have been at least Â£500!
You did Mast Manning at the V Sign?Stav said:Spot on Whitemouse, but we did it better at Vincent even if our mast wasn't as high. :wink:
I always thought a Crown was another word for a Shilling (5p to you Dunkers)!phil1972 said:A Crown was worth 5 shillings and so 25 New Pence in todays money.
If you take 5 shilling and inflate its value but average earning from 1950 to 2005 say you would come about with a value of just under Â£17. So you were not far off the mark.

As one of the smallest in the mess I had my fair share of bullying. But once I had witnesses that I had climbed to the top of the mast, my kudos increased somewhat.
