"Hands to Dress Tidily"

Discussion in 'The Quarterdeck' started by canteenflat, Jan 12, 2011.

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. +What an embarrassment today's sailors look in their number ones.
    Somewhat like a starched tailor's dummy from a Chatham Naval Tailor's window .
    Have they never slept in them?
    Cleaned unmentionable stains from them using half inched carbon tetrachloride from the ship's Pyrene fire extinguishers?
    Bleached their collars and dicky fronts in pussers Teepol?
    Had their caps sat on by performing mules with strapped-on nubile young things from Panama City?
    How do they keep them so dull and un-lived in looking?

    Sadly, the females look ridiculous
  2. WTF are you on about. Have I missed something in your post as I am at a total loss what this is all about.
  3. You clearly have.
  4. What would that be then. Todays sailors (male and female) all look very smart in their No.1's.
  5. :pr:I feel that I must disagree with you on that Drakey.
    Why couldn't they have kept the WRNS uniform, both occifers and ratings for the lady sailors, at least for No1s. It was both smart and sexy, especially when worn with full webbing and stockings:pr:
  6. Aye, wrens look gash in rig these days.

    Even the older wren's caps were sexier.

    Now they just look like young boys with long hair. I'm sure that floats some people's boats but it does **** all for me.

    It's amazing what a bit of femininity can do for a bird's looks. I knew a wren writer who on reflection was nothing special, however she used to wear a skirt and heels with her 3's (5's) instead of trousers and she had an old wren's cap instead of the unisex jobby. Every single lad on base fantasized about her even though there were plenty of better looking birds about, they just didn't have the rig.

    I blame JPA.
  7. There used to be a wren writer who worked in HMS Cambridge UPO while I was on the gate there who wore full webbing under her skirt every day. The reason we on the gate knew this was because the skirt she wore was too tight to drive in properly so she hiked it right up to drive in in the morning. Her car pass and ID card used to be scrutinised extremely carefully every morning! Bring back the old splits rig, it was far better.
  8. Hell yes

  9. Divs.

    Every one of them.

    God bless these wrens and all who sail in them.
  10. Oh god, really? Are we about to have an influx of ROMFT-type quotes - tiddly bow waves in your cap and your silk looking special. Tell you what, if you liked it so much in the 70s (or 50s, or 30s, or 1890s), why don't you do us all a favour and go to a website that specialises in that.

  11. No, we swiftly managed to steer the conversation away from bow wave chat and are now talking about wren's underwear. Do try to keep up Sir.

  12. This IS a website that specialises in ALL things navy. Including Wrens in stockings and webbing.
    Now go away and pack up your non iron sailor suit you oik!
  13. Since when did Wrens wear underwear?

    My 5's are made by Gieves, no worries there......
  14. Quite right and all.:toothy3:

    Quite right and all.:toothy3:

    If you ever had got close enough you would have found out most did.:geek:
    It was part of the sport.=-(
  15. I remember a one time skipper of Fulmar when someone remarked to him that he had a number of really attractive wrens on station and was asked how he segregated the sexes.Simple he replied. We prise them apart
  16. Proof submited that they do !

    I take it Mrs canteen has entered the menopause phase of her life and your mastibating like a panda chewing on bambo(nicorette gum). If you wish some links to free porn, you only need to ask.

    Todays RN have a number of uniforms suited for the task at hand. Numbers twos were just a red herring and a waste of money.

    Anyway, **** off you dribbling old perverted ****, who cares what a women wears!!
  18. While the old rig could look very smart and tidlly after a few pints it could also deteriorate into mega scruffy, with all the bits and pieces detatching themselves randomly at will. Silk, lanyard and coller seemed to develope a mind of their own. So for males the new uniform is easier to both wear and maintain.
    However lady sailors should still be in the old Wrns rig as far as thisold fart is concerned
  19. I couldn't give a fishes tit.

    Just thought I'd mention it.
  20. I am with canteenflat on this one and here is the proof


    Not a Lard Arse to be seen!!!!
