As a young sea cadet 1960s I went on board a warship and a man with a dirty pair of overalls on and a black beard kept pinching my cheek and calling me his BIT OF SKIN ??? he wanted to show me the engine room he said he was known on board as a 3 badge stoker >>>my scc officer took us all ashore and when I told him this story he said dont worry they are all friendly in the navy . The ship was HMS BAROSSA they called it the QUEEN B . I think this stoker may have been gay ? ANY IDEAS ?
