I wonder if you guys can help me please. One of our regular forums appears to have aquired what some could call a troll, and I'm wondering if some of the facts he's spouting could possibly be true.. or is it all bovine? Aside from some dates dont add up (he stated he was paid at one time in Â£ shilling and d.. yet he didnt join till he was 18 and is now 51) Anyhow what I am querying.... This guy claims hes a submariner and the sub "sailed out" of Plymouth on the 7th of Dec. He supposedly last posted on the 6th of Dec using the Navy Intranet - and laughably said he couldnt use emoticons because he was posting from there. He's now apparently surfaced in Livorno, Italy... after quote "going through the Bay of Biskay surfaced,sea sick or what lol,sat on the throttles with a bucket." and is now staying at "Hotel Citta". Is it normal for the RN to put submariners up in (smallish 20 bedroom) hotel???? Does this statement reek of untruths - or is it possible. It would be good to catch this guy out once and for all if he is falsely impersonating being a submariner. Thanks in anticipation of anyone comments.
