Jack....Today..... v...... Yesterday

What's going on then?

If someone like myself looks at photo's that members have posted it seems Jack pre 1970/80 is somewhat fitter/muscular/masculine than the jack photos posted in the 90's and beyond. What's the score? How has Jack morphed from a quite muscular but bag of shit bloke that suits the uniform into a geek that looks like someone dressing up as a sailor?

That's how I viewed myself !! Shame that my piccies don't reflect that thought .... :(
Never quite got to be the bronzed god image, despite many months of humping stores and drafts to foreign climes - must be why they really called us White Mice ....... ;)
Perhaps I should have to scan a few pics of me as a baby on Albion - shoulder blades like wings ..... :laughing2:

Even if Jack isn't as fit/muscular/manly these days if you like a fella in uniform this may be of interest to you. ;)

I blame the government. Or something.

Can't really comment on that as I've only been in the navy for a short period, the only thing I know is how to look good in front of mirrors posing with my Raybands.

The reason is of course that all the fit, masculine men have joined the army, not the navy!! :)

Ducks down behind the parapet, awaiting incoming!!

With the link in Post #3 - you could sort of have a point !!

That looks like part of the Parade I saw at the end of last year marching down Regent Street - :)

Lack of daily rum ration, combined with no bow wave caps and split arsed sailors with tits......bit of a no brainer really...... But there again ............. I'm biased. (Or is it just the way I walk ?) :walk:
