Been on the Merlot again ,wife out, me bored shitless so can I try this topic; Having served on ships in all three naval bases can I give an honest opinion of the matelots I served with and maybe get some feedback, sorry if I offend anyone but comments are based purely on personal opinion: Rosyth : Jocks hated/tolerated the english matelots but as an englishman I would go were the shits hits the fan with the jocks anyday. Pompey : Professional, boring but a far better run ashore Guzz : Sea dodgers at SR level believe that 6 years ashore at SR is the norm anything less and they drip like fcuk. Only GS comment - I know the submarine guys get fcuked between Faslane and Devonport. Never did Chatham but my mum did!!
