Hmm. I see. That explains it then.rosinacarley said:Er .... no. Worse I'm afraid, I'm RNR!
Anyway, now we're being civil. Wht unit you in (if that's not being too nosey)? I was based in RNR Dundee many years ago as an AB(M) (HMS Camperdown the gaff was called). The 'Staff AB' I had on the plaque on the door into the Coxn's office. Had to laugh. When I joined we had a Ton as our sweeper (who's name I can't remember), followed by HMS Helmsdale and also a P2000 (HMS Archer if I remember rightly, but my memory's pickled with the booze).
One of the happiest periods of my career. Lodging allowance the lot. Didn't touch my wages for 12 months. Great draft for an AB. Never sniffed anything like it as a S/R. Another example of 'fun drafts' going down the Swanee.
