I cannot find anything about "Darkie" has he fell off the radar?
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.

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

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"

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:

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?
