  8. Always worked on Port Watches just how it happened. Unfortunately now I work with the Crabs it A or B and 1 or 2 shifts.

    1 in 4 when ashore

  12. Chicken Madras, bombay spuds and a keema nan for me.....after the last dog watch.
  13. Ex wafu. Three watches at sea and 24 about ashore when working on fixed wing. Great watch keeping system.
    Watch on stop on when on a ships flight. Load of crap!
  14. I was special duties (Blue card)!
    Never did a watch in my seagoing career only in barracks!
    Did 3 Christmas duties (second leave best) in the UK spent 4 Christmases abroad. East of Suez!! Thats when we had a navy and could afford to send ships to the Pacific....
  15. i did 8 chrimbos in 10 years, supposed to work 24 about but usually good oppo so worked 7 days on 7 days off, followed by 2 weeks leave.
  16. Coiled Spring for most of my time.

  17. Funny I was always 2nd Stbd but usualy 24 about, chief stoker alway forgot about us down B boiler. I didnt mind at least you got left alone.
  18. No idea......

    Opposite my Oppo thats all I need to know
  19. Ex wafu. Flight Deck Watches at sea ( nothing like Fishhead watches) and 24 about ashore when working on Fire Stations.
    Had a couple of Blue Carders ashore in my time.
  20. Never kept a watch on my last few ships,always wangled SSFP.
    Though while serving on a Ton class as a an Lmem(L) I was made to keep middles and mornings on the bridge.I suspect to keep the OOW company.
    No use to anyone! Though I could use a pair of binoculars and make tea!
