They've gone a bit dry, but what the f**k.............anyone fancy attempting to pull a vacuum trying
to get some smoke out of one of these then? Down to my last 60. Ran out of stamps till next month.

Cheap and nasty tabs. Real sailors rolled their own from pussers sawdust baccy.

I'm sure I read somewhere that they found alot of pussers discarded butt ends in gay clubs during the 70s & 80s. Apparently they seen alot of action once they flashed their tabs.

As a 17 year old in training it always used to amaze me how many fellow trainees at HMS Mercury would get caught smuggling blue liners out on weekenders. Everyone would have to muster in the drill shed prior to catching the transport into Petersfield, every week without fail someone would get caught by the Reggies with a shitload of them in their grip!!

CDR (E) on Fife action station/defence watch station was HQ1 so down to him to make the pipe ''One all round'', wardroom made a hat out of BL's at XMAS for him to wear. He was very pleased and proud of this hat and came down 3Q to show it off, came in the mess square (uninvited), stood to attention and pointing to his hat...''One all round''....the mess in unison...''Fuck off''.....he did smartish.

Happy memories...we used to have a bad tempered pig of a wren who did the baccy issue, she used to wonder why the divers would fall on the floor laughing as she licked the stamps.

Would that be the Chief wren from Vernon. remember when she shut up shop just before the Chief Sailmaker was served. When she came back from lunch he had made an oversized pair of canvas knickers which he nailed to the slops door. She was a miserable git
