  2. safe bredwin
  3. Good luck.
  4. Long time since i was at Raleigh but its too late now to try getting in extra training. but im new on this forum and would suggest you look further as the infos here about Raleigh.
    I was also over the road at Fisgard and was a founder member of Spickernell division. And as for pay to put you into perspective we got paid £15 a month at two weekly intervals . The payday we got £8 instead of £7 was bonus weeks. But petrol for my motorbike was 25 pence a gallon and beer was 20 pence a pint. This is not that long ago either.
    My mate in Spickernell division who also motorbiked with us to Looe at madcap speeds and Torquay David Allan Strickland (DAS) died in the computer room of HMS Coventry trying to reset the computer that had gone tits up due to too many targets crashing it.That was during the Falklands war.
    But yes good effort trying to get knowledge about things. The bummer will be trying to pass the naval swimming test.The test i had to go to baccydippers for for months. It did not help on my test (me a weak swimmer) to have a guy in the four in front nearly drown. The PTI prodding him with a big pole as he sunk to the bottom blowing out bubbles. we thought it was a act till the PTI jumped in in his immaculate gym gear and dived to the bottom to pull him out. then they did mouth to mouth and got a ambulance. Next it was us to jump in the water and swim. Go.
  5. Do not name names....
  6. Ooops sorry since both Spickernel who was a admiral who the division was named after is dead as is Collingwood and Raleigh who both bases are named after ditto.
    My mate Das Strickland is dead having fought in the Falklands War.
    If i cant name a bloody hero who died freeing British people from tyrany then you can stuff this forum up its proverbial.
    Because if your coming the old soldgier routine and pussers bullshit then its time for you to learn a truth . That in these modern days bullshiters get there get just deserts.
  7. Mines jam rolly polly. :money:

  8. Firstly,i would start to relearn how to write English!!!!!!
