Did a favour for Drafty when at Faslane, got told they would do me one back, so I asked for a 42 out of Rosyth early. got a 22 out of guzz, but it was early out of turn. Did them another favour when on the 22, asked for a 42 out of rosyth, preferably in refit or at least 6 months based in UK waters (was on the way back from the Gulf and intended to propose to the GF) got a 42, Liverpool, going into refit, perfect, planned to propose when I got home on leave, day before I am due to get home, SO calls me into the office, sorry Scribes Liverpool is cancelled, you have got the Glasgow, and er, well she is due a Gulf patrol!!!! Ended up proposing on the Flight Deck of the Glasgow on our return from the Gulf

That last bit sounds quite romantic! How many women can say that they have been proposed to on a Flight Deck!

It's something you would always remember.

A friend of mine used to tell his wife about subbies but calmed his wife down by telling her not to worry, he'd pay it !!!!! (Clever lad).
Sadly my wife never bought that one!!

One of ours was daft enough to leave his pay slip, whats this SSP (submarines pay), quick as a flash he says don't worry I take care of that and make sure its paid? Unfortunately when getting divorced, the truth was pointed out , stand by messy process?

Wanted to add a bit, joined the 22 (Battleaxe) too late to arrange for her to join me for station leave in Penang, which was just as well, as the Gulf kicked off and we sailed early, almost had the same problem on the Glasgow but one of the Wafu's pointed me in the direction of a travel firm in Portland that was run by Ex RN and that they would see me in the right direction, so when got 2 weeks in Singers out of it, Hotel was not quite as good as the one arrange by the ship, but it cost us a few hundred less than the rest of the ships co paid to get their WAGs out :) and I believe she had a better flight. Point of the story is even WAFU's have a use at time (got that Waspie :) )

If he was just back from a jolly, obviously an empty wallet, he was a skimmer, no subbies.
Very empty wallet and bank account, money started to haemorrhage very early in the trip. weekend in Gib ended up as two weeks due to breakdown, that one cost me a small fortune, with absolutely nothing to show for it apart from some truly epic hangovers and very few memories

should have bee only one hangover, after you left :) ;)
On one jolly one of our dabbers woke up in the tiller flat with a sentry next to him he said where are we (ship moving) 3 days at sea was his answer. Thinks a bit and says am I in the shit, yep after you have cleaned the shit and other stuff up, the Joss wants a word? Gib just did strange things to people.

Didn't have a flight deck so did the ring thingy on a zebra crossing on Mutely Plain on a busy Saturday, stopped traffic for a bit, that was over 40 years ago, these days couldn't even get on to my knee?

Couldn't get away. No way was I swimming in that filth.
To be honest, I had completely forgotten about the Mutely Plain thingy, until years later she was telling a friend how excited and totally mortified embarrassed she was as everyone at that time was looking at her, and when she said yes a big cheer went up, I must have been pissed. :rolleyes:
