  2. Is he allowed to pick up the Joss and his reggies for haircuts and shaves?
    If so definitely top job:clap:

    Yep, that's why they need a long stick with a knobbly bit on the end.
     
  4. WO1 Casey (outgoing WO) - 32 years service - 4 ships - gotta be a scribes
     
  5. Correct. Wouldn't argue with him though as he was a Field Gunner.
     
  6. Late seventies early eighties there was a guy I knew.He had alopecia or something, most of his hair had fallen out.Being a vain sort he got two wigs. one a longish haired walking out wig and the other he gave a woeful military hair cut and attached it to his hat, so he could put the whole thing on in one movement.Anyway, on parade for something or other, he gets a poke in the back with above mentioned stick, and the one word. 'Haircut'. To which he takes of hat and attached rug and says. 'This short enough for you'

  9. I was just re-reading the Pompey News article and this bit caught my eye:

    "There was an official ceremony on board HMS Victory, attended by the Second Sea Lord Vice-Admiral, Sir David Steel."

    2SL was awarded the CBE, but I don't think that the KBE has come his way .... yet.

    Maybe he won a race at the Olympics, it's pretty much instantaneous nowadays. I note there are howls about Beckham & Murray not being knighted immediately, ignoring the fact that they've not long had OBE' s.
     
  11. I think Beckham's problem is his Mrs, she would become Lady Victoria!!!
     
  12. Good job the bloke on the left has a pair of ears, he'd be blind otherwise!

  13. Being (ex) Scribes I doubt very much he is anything but a very nice bloke, as for arguing with him, I am sure we would see eye to eye on all things
     
  14. Casey to Cass not many letter changes, are we trying to save money here?

    I was a plane (I say plane it was a seaking) captain with Steve back in the 80's (820). Congrats shippers.
