    I've known a couple of people in the mob who had that surname and it didn't do them any harm.

    Why on Earth does he think it'll improve his career prospects? For his whole time in, he'll be known as "that twat who used to be gay".

    I was trying to think of a nickname for him, can't come up with one. Maybe a bit of an overreaction by Mr Happy.

    So, he heard the name 'Fareel' in a film called 'Blow'. :?

    Izzie for real?

    Ditto. What, does he think he won't get promoted because of his surname? I don't get it.

    That was my first reaction also, Wrecker.
    When I was in the mob, gay meant - happy/carefree. It wasn't until I first went to the good ol' USA in the 60's that 'gay' meant something else.
    But that was a long time ago.. when we had a navy. Brownhatters were called brownhatters !

    Far from the name Gay holding him back, in todays RN is could well enhance his career.

    Or Gay Lussac who came up with the now standard measurement of alcohol content, in the civilised world at least.

    I yearn for a name which prompts ridicule and attempts at bullying, if only because it seems the perfect excuse to batter people.
