slim said:You have two years in the RN you are now a Sub Lt aged 19
Your task is to take a group of sailors on patrol and quell a small riot.
The party you are leading consists of
One CPO aged 45
One PO aged 35
One LH aged 37 (pissed off because by now he should be a PO)
Four ratings consisting of
One 17 year old on his first ship
Two 25 year old irresponsible men (the ships idiots)
One 30 year old mature sailor
What do you do?
Tell them all that it's a trip to the pub. Confess to the chief and ask for his help through it all, ie just ask the chief what to do. Make sure the lads get shore leave and a hoofing run ashore afterwards, and they'll still respect (like) you.
