How the RN has changed

Discussion in 'The Quarterdeck' started by canteenflat, Jan 23, 2011.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Early mentions of HMS Charybdis referred to her sailors calling her, affectionately " Crabby Dish"

    When it came to the relatively modern Leander--Her sailors called her "Cherry B"
     
  2. Only because Cherry B hadn't been invented when the old cruiser was around!

    2BM
     
  3. Cherry Brandy ( KirschWasser
    ) was around before the Dutch sailors got their courage)
     
  4. 2BM

    If you scroll down to Cherry B and click the little arrow, you can hear one of the old jingles:

    PICTURE DISC
     
  5. Cherry B..... the 'brand'.... is what 2bm was referring to..... (I assume)
     
  6. He was, but Cherry B like Babycham are big girls versions of the real thing.
     
  7. On the subject of Leanders, now that we have lady sailors.................I wonder how they'd feel being drafted/shafted to the Dido. !
     
  8. On reflection, in the morning, a trifle Scylla
     
  9. All the ladies would want Penelope
     
  10. You just can't be Sirius
     
  11. Very good ones, but the name was Crabby DICK!
     
  12. But you're using a literal translation from Dictionnaire etymologiqe de la langue grecque , I suggest
     
  13. You're Norman GranXXXX and I claim my fiver.
