Just wanted to pop by and say hello folks, my WO applications away, and I'm hoping if all goes well I'll be spending a good amount of time on here.

Great forum! It's got all the charm of a complete and utter bastard. I'm sure if the real thing is anything like this place, I'll feel right at home. :eek:

Ah, are you referring to the uncharted "FBR" incident?

I was chief stoker on the Iron Duck at that time, chasing a pesky submarine what then went 'clang' somewhere off Scotland around this time - endex.

Ouch. My sympathy if you were one of the guys below.

Yep, we followed you in at a respectable distance in case you weren't telling us about the imminent nuclear meltdown holocaust thingy.

Damn, I thought I'd typed a 't' instead of an 'f' in the "Name the Exercise" competition in which the prize was to steer the ship to make a submarine crash. Sorry 'bout dat - crap speller.
