Jack's bigging himself up on facebook....



This Photo is on the Royal Navy Face book site.

You've got to admit who ever runs that site has got a sense of humour. :)

I know Jack won't be called on to Troop the Colours but that is beyond the pale, their instructor needs a stiff talking to if that's the standard he/she is producing.

Assuming it's not during the first couple of days of course. We don't know, so to assume is a bit wank really.

Directed at finks blobs. Agree with the sentiment, it was the dig at the instructor which was unfounded for the reasons I gave.

Remedial beret wearing for the shippers in the front!

Here's me thinking that shippers / shipmate is a noun used as a form of address between those who have served in a ship, usually the same one at the same time.

Did I make the mistake of thinking it was posted up so we could have a bit of a chuckle? FFS!

News just in, Queen orders 'splice the mainbrace' as notoriously cantankerous, contrary and never wrong naval pensioner admits the possibility that he may have erred.
 
The recruits in the photo are week one on their first drill lesson. They have only been in the Navy for four days.

Steady Seadog steady, it's only a possibility as it would require the OP to clarify his reason for posting before I would admit to anything.

Four days!! Finks had spliced the mainbrace (the real one, not the tot), put down three fuzzy wuzzy rebellions and still managed to get a faded collar and a bow wave in his cap in that time.

Regardless of his beret, the lad still looks like a mongo.

Thinking back to my entry, there were enough ex cadets and back classees in the division to ensure we all at least had decent berets within a day or two. He should have been gripped by one of the other lads in his class before he even got out of his block.

Either his oppos already hate him or as mentioned before he's just one of those spastics that is beyond help.

I fondly recall a lad like that, he was truly gash, we all tried to pull him through, everyone helped out with his ironing etc. I even bulled his bats for him, they were gleaming. Yet within 3 minutes of getting dressed each morning, somehow the big Yorkshire mongo would look like he'd been routing through the scran bag, walked through a sandpit and spilt ketchup on his shirt.

Last I heard he's now a Lt Commander.
 
...decent berets within a day or two...

... big Yorkshire mongo....I heard he's now a Lt Commander.

2DD,

:read2:Within the new RALEIGH curriculum it seems Dog Watch Instruction for Backward Beret Wearers doesn't kick off until Week Two.

I'd say your Mongo Yorky's charisma in having all those recruits scurrying around after him was an early indication of latent leadership; which evidently blossomed, eh? He's probably up for the (I won't say 'his') OBE sometime soon, too.


When that Class recovers from the rigors of Phase One it would be interesting to see some of those who were once RR Newbies pop back up at this thread to tell us how it really was on that fateful day... I'd hope so anyway.
