Cochrane at Rosyth in the 60's when it was 3 accommodation ships, Duncansby Head, Girdleness & Chevron.
Us greenies were in the after most mess, above the tiller flat, on the Duncansby Head, bathrooms and heads were fwd. and required a walk on the upper scupper past the gangway. If the OOW caught you bimbling past in your towel and flip flops with your dhoby bucket he would go apesh1t.
The galley and dinning hall was on the Girdleness and the food was sh1te.
After this, Collingrad was a piece of p1ss.
Every draft to Scotland. Full of drunken Jocks and Punch drunk Geordies, and disaffected Ulsterman, still living the battle of the What ever. Cold wet and missarable. June July and fecking winter. Now I am outside I would rather stick pins in my eyes than cross Adrians wall.
Worst sea draft: RESOLUTION, build, CSTs, DASO and 1st patrol. 2 and 1 grog (thought this was supposed to be a submarine?). Too many rank conscious skimmers, and too many career orientated officers.
Worst shore draft: DEFIANCE 1972-74. Allegedly a submarine base, where submariners were 2nd class citizens.
