    Aha, it works on my stand-alone PC (Did I tell you I've got two computers?)

    I've just rung the Department for Work & Pensions to tell them that I think Sandy from Crossroads was pulling a flanker with his wheelchair scam.

    One of the slight differences in the 1960's compared to today, was epitomised in the line "I've passed the test & start HMS Raleigh next monday" :-D
     
  4. It had already started to change in the early 70`s I had to wait 3 whole weeks after the test :-D

    Thanks Nina, brought back some memories, I reckon that I was the same build a "Sandy" when I joined up. I waited 3 months but only because by doing so I avoided Ganges, went in at 16 years 3 months and straight to Collingwood for kitting up thence to Mercury for the 9 months Sparker training.

  7. I seem to remember the soundtrack from rather different films! A plumber, pizza delivery boy, postman turns up just as some bint gets out of the shower.....you get the picture.
    Didn't the RM one star Benny from Crossroads?:slow:

    Reckon that must have been made immediately after WWII, if not actually during the war.
