Flying a pussers helicopter in Italy in a snowstorm trying to follow a set of wires - the only thing we could see. Lost sight of them and asked the other pilot if he could see them - answer no. At that point, one of the groundcrew in the back shouts "It's okay boss, I can see them......"
Well i've been asked a few ridiculous things recently in basic. for example, a new recruit asked me if i get british citizenship for serving in the Royal Navy?. I'm from Northern Ireland. i wasn't impressed.
Other stupid things along those lines would be, "do you get BBC 1 over there" and "it must cost a fortune to call home".
The Classic, happens every time (Or did in my case) 'are you on leave again', used to wind me up, of course I was on fecking leave, I was in the navy never based or on ship less than 160 miles from home, not exactly a daily comute now wasi t.
