Did You have Him down the mess deck pissing it up? ;)
He came onboard but did not stay long before he ewas asked to leave, with signals to and from UK, stupid WAFU Photo wanted to arrest him. He was down the RP's mess, big money maker for him, in all the press. He was aloud to stay in Rio but not work. They're was 1000's of jack ashore, so it was best not to keep him, politics?

I would've thought it was even worse politically for the Royal Navy not to arrest a known criminal on the trot who was bone enough to step onto a British warship.

I'd heard the dit alright. Was there a reward for capture? The social fund could have been quids in...;)

Didn't they have some porn star do a centerfold spread on one of the boats somewhere? I seem to recall something. Possibly old Linda Bootlace.

I'd heard a bit where a fairly tidy US Navy female officer was persuaded to do a striptease down a boat's bomb shop somewhere.

Of course, we're far more 'professional' these days, blah blah blah. We also have a hoofing shortage of personnel, one of the reasons being that we're still supplying lots of hard times for our sailors to endure, but we're busily removing as many of the good bits as possible.

When the decision point comes to put the chit in, there aren't enough shared good times to swing the decision in the RN's favour.

I guess, over the years, society evolves. Nevertheless, I cannot imagine submariners or the general public being overly impressed if the Command thought it appropriate for a naked male-model photoshoot for a female or gay periodical magazine, nowadays somehow.

IIRC Command knew nothing about it,until it appeared. I imagine there were a few interviews without coffee (and bring Your hat) ;)

HMS Cardiff's last visit to Cardiff before she paid off. We were open to visitors and some doris wandered over to the Lynx which was ranged on deck, took off her kit and started rubbing herself all over it whilst her oppo took pictures of her. Had there not been kids coming up the gangway I'd have delayed our response to turfing them off.

Weirdest duty ever.

Fair one, NS. At the same time, we're asking ordinary people to deal with extraordinary pressures. 'Unofficial' cases like this are a big part of keeping the attraction going - the fact that command did not officially sanction this makes it even better in terms of dit value. Agreed, it'll never make the cover of a recruiting brochure, but it goes a long way in building the unofficial esprit de corps that we need when the ventilation stops and the angry doorbell sounds!

I've worn Lynx for years and it hasn't happened to me.
