Nozzers (80's TV series)

Managed to find this series on youtube: NOZZERS Episode 1 Part 1.wmv - YouTube

Obviously had a laugh at the 80's haircuts, things that struck me where the ages difference between male recruits (most seemed to be around 16) and the WRNS who were older (latter seemed to be more switched on with drill and only had five weeks basic training).

In one of the final episodes the Jennies were off on Dartmoor for the night, ending up next day with a pub lunch! (Was this usual or was the RN PR machine in full swing?).

Also can someone clear up whether female sailors are still called Jennies?

They're still called jennies, ET(ME)'s are still called stokers. They change all the titles but the old ones are still in common use (scribes, jack dusty, greenies etc etc).

WRNs no longer being Wrens, are they not now infact jacks with flaps= flapjacks? =-|
I like your thinking, you explain that to one and I'll come and visit you on the ward. :blackeye: Besides, as the old names are still in use it should still be splits.

It would seem weird going on a ship now with splitarses onboard.

When i left in 83 you were able to go to the heads in towel, flipflops and dobey dust, bet that ain't allowed anymore with them onboard now.

Lighting farts, porn, Zulu Warriors, gronk boards, just a few of the things they will have to cut out now they are onboard ships.

Still did when the Cumberland was refitted to allow the Wrens onboard. One night the forward bathrooms were out of use so went aft for a dhobey. Walking back up the main drag to 3HZ I met the killick writer heading down to her mess. Out of politeness I covered up my nipples ... and she laughed.

It's not. Only because the blokes had smaller cocks and felt inferior.
