Re: Own up, what have you 'taken' as a trophy on a run ashor
Part of a messdeck of a small vessel that sported a"pubic book!"After every run ashore if you scored we expected a trophy attached to the pages with tape.
Got pretty full but I think a lot snipped their own 'specially the ugly ones.
We also had an "ugly cup" you had to pick up the worst and show your mates you were going back to her place or a back alley!
Still remember the faces of some of those gilrs who could not believe Jack in uniform chatting them up.
That one sort of fizzled out,naturally,but the pubie book kept going strong.
