I remember an old 'Jack' cartoon with a Royal Marine and a Matloh in it from years ago...... can anyone help me out with a link or even a scan,,, or even a poke in the right direction ???

  2. tried the same search scouse, not the size or quality or even the one i was after , thnx though
  3. Have you tried contacting Navy News?
  4. I cannot find anything about "Darkie" has he fell off the radar?
  5. Yes mate , emailed them a week ago , nowt but eery silence so far
  6. I was on the Fife with 'Darkie' 66-69.....the only 3 badged O/D I'd ever met.............I beleive his army time counted towards time served. Great cartoonist...great character.

    edited to add...

    He was an Ordinary Seaman in rank but had 3 GCB's ..... not to be confused with a 3 badged O/D (like Jesse)

  7. Do you remember the one he did in the Albany, a fuckin great big black matelot grabbing a little ****** by the front of his collar and saying,
    "You can take my tot, you can smoke my tabs, drink my beer and I might even give you a shot at my women,

    But never repeat never ask me to play the fuckin white man"

  8. :thumbleft:
  9. Darkie was on the ANTRIM 1st commish when I was on there. He'd made it to killick by then I think!

  11. I was at raleigh in 66 with darkie he was a class leader I think PO Trigg was our instructor
  12. The most memorable Jack cartoon for me was the one for the lad wanting to become a chef. Instructor slaps an old boot in front of him and says "If you can turn that into a steak son, you're in".

    ...reminds me of the old Navy toast: "I trust with my money and my life. But never my wife!" :wink:
  17. There's about 30-40 Tugg cartoons in all the yearly Jackspeak books.

    God bless Rick, Jolly & Tugg.

  18. I resemble that remark except that I was a no badge O.D.Not a common or garden O.D. BUT A BIG SCREAMING O.D. What became of the cartoons decorating the bar walls of the Royal Standard?
