  8. Just as long as it was't that big "Red" Nuke-the-world button eh?
    You old Bomber Queen you!!
     

  9. Ah fortunately this RS knew his watch.... 8)

    I used to stand in and let the boys watch the movie and still keep my hands on :)

    As I still do with my teams today .... best way to know how the customers really find the service offered ......
     

  10. Yep I can't hide the fact I was a bomber queen .... and loved it!

    LOOOO
     
  11. I was a bomber queen,Repulse(port) left her 93 for Nuclear repair barge in Guzz.
     
  12. Seems a life time ago for me .....

    Since 1999 I have been rather busy!

    I was one of the few who did all 4 bombers.....

    Starting in Reso in 1984, did time in Renown, Repulse and the Revenge (albeit for only a few weeks!) ending also in the finest ship I ever served on - the mighty Resolution.

    Loved my time although the final nail for me was 3 crimbo patrols in a row due to all the messing with trouser legs .....

    I moved over to S class and did sometime in Splendid and Sceptre but was invalided out with Arthritis in 1999.

    That prob still exists but never as much as it did on the boats - guess poor beds, damp conditions etc never helped much - at one point I couldnt even pick a cup up!

    Still I miss those days and the crews - a very special breed.....

    I still see some of the old COs appearing in the news occasionally - ie the LR5 recover for the Russians and more recently the appearnce of a certain ex CO in court on less favourable terms regards piccies on his home PC!

    I do keeep in touch with a few ex sparkers too

    You can find a few on the friends reunited site!

    regards
     
  13. lol, I'LL second that and some !!!!!
     
  14. Lewis, you were a useless twat when serving, good to see you are still a twat.
     
  15. "I was one of the few who did all 4 bombers....."

    Hardly something to be proud of. :p
     
  16. :?
     

  17. :D Well I could think of worse things to admit!
     
  18. Yup I was in Faslane late 80's and early 90's on Revenge, left as a POTS and now also work in IT ( based in Stirling but contract all over the place as most work in my field down south).

    Lets see if I can manage to just press the button once :)
     
  19. Just show he wasn't scared of a bit of sea time, unlike the fleet boat fender squadron.
