Leading hand of the mess responsibilities?

Boarding party sucked ass as well. Seemed like a good idea the time. Me and a few other piss cans thought it would be ace jumping out of choppers etc. Get out the ops room and all that.
Fucked about in HMS Cambridge doing the training etc. Then at sea... as @crash_evans said, it was utter utter ****.

This. In hoofing amount of spades. Was boarding party for Telic 1. Chasing dhow’s for 12 hours, I’d rather guide my Dad into my Mum.

I just hated Cambridge. Too many shouty people.
I hope the OP is getting the picture. In other words, as @Waspie said, don’t volunteer for fcuk all. You’ll get stitched anyway, and if you do volunteer, the lads will think you’re a bellend.
Hope this helps.

Boarding party great, from my viewpoint!!

Out rope, thumbs up, "stick gone". Go Left!!!!

Except when number 1 doesn’t quite go down as freely as he should and stacks it with Numbers 2/3/4 (I was 2) on top of him for a defence display day. I still remind him off this to this day.

We had to go back to practicing on the port bridge wing afterwards.

Bad drills from the dispatcher!!! Only three on the rope!!!
Obviously the dispatcher was an Observer!!!!!!
You'd have had a better service from an aircrewman!!!!!
(Always look after the troops - ya just never know who's cooking your dinner).

The Chef had the clansman (number 3). The observer was in deep chefs puns. Thankfully Merlin have a crewie in the back dispatching.

I haven’t even mentioned when the LHOM wanted to down hatch on the Brum. The JOSS came down after he heard the rumblings and took his hooks straight off him.

I still like to chuckle when the AC has some bants and they put phallic shaped clouds in the met brief.

You'd have to go a long way to beat one of my old Flight Cmdr's!!!
Failure in the comms shop meant no weather data.
Boss looks out of bridge windows then disappears for a while.
Appears just before briefing. As AC will testify, Time check then Met.
HC did time check and FC started his weather briefing with an apology for no digital weather. Then shakes a tin can and throws contents on bridge floor. (Wafu). Chicken bones spill out all over the place followed by a few moments pacing around the bones then gives a warm front blah blah blah!!! Speil!!!
We took off as planned!!!
PS, weather forecast was bang on. (Amazing when you look out the window!!!!)

My intro to the LHOM in 5D10, Albion. Big old flat thing!!!
Here's Pete J, killick of the grot.
There sat Pete, dodger dangling in a tiger can with one of Doc's mystical magic potions following a dose after a run ashore in Singa's.
Excellent bloke, took everything the world threw at him with a shrug.

Similar dit on the Chatham where they made the new lads wake the LHOM up with a can of red death. Big black lad with a huge schlong. Sit back watch and enjoy.

I fear we maybe pushing this to Lil’s...

I fear we may know that chap involved. The Mrs was on there too. Thankfully I was her first dabber so I know you haven’t been through her.

No names no pack drill.
