Great stuff guys, really great stuff. MOD posts a good news story about a bunch of female medics who have done the job for real, and all some of the [email protected] here can do is post lewd comments. Have none of you idiots realised that the press do actually look on sites like this for easy stories - and that you've just given them an easy story - for instance

"Sexist sailors attack returning female soldiers as being ugly and overweight" - cue instant PR nightmare for MOD, and another story that gets dug up. This isn't the fecking mess square - this is an internet site where anyone can read what you say and use it against you.

I know its banter, you know its banter - we all know its banter apart from the tabloid journalist with some column inches to fill by tomorrow morning. If you don't believe me then check out ARRSE or PPRUNE where non stories regularly get lifted to fill space in a paper.

Think guys - this is the reputation of the RN at potential risk here.

:angry7: How dare you bunch take the mick out of these heros! Well done ladies :thumbleft:











































My preferance would be the one of the left, then the middle and Jenny being last. In reality I would go straight for Jenny knowing the other two would tell me to Foxtrot Oscar.

You need to do a reality check, have you not seen some of the shite on this site.
Fcuk me there is a whole thread designed at putting down anything that aint happened in the last twenty years, and a geezer who if you track his posts is dedicated to it.
Reputation? Stable doors, horses bolted, etc etc etc. 8O 8O

Try reading the thread that trashes the Royals over their medals and decorations, the press wouldent go for that eh?
Headline....
ROYAL NAVY THINKS "PRINCES "ARE ALL GLORY GRABBING POSERS. Yhea right now I'm going to help Rolf Harris move.
And of course the RN has a reputation for Political Correctness?? 8O
 
I would do the Matelot before the two Pongo Corporals. Not I hasten to add out of miss guided loyalty to the senior service but purely due to the thought of someone saying "thank you".

That said well done girls.

When the day comes that you cannot take the piss out of each other it will be the day to sell off HMS Victory.

I would just like to record the rare occurrence of my being in total agreement with finknottle!
