Just bimbling about in GUZZ and there are loads of trainees in No 1's rig bimbling about on a Saturday morning. Anyone know why? Do they have to wear it now when they get granted weekenders? Is there something on this weekend?

I suppose you being really shy and sensitive like you could not/would not ask a trainee in case they knuckled you :D :D :D :twisted:

This is a good point.
On the other hand I find it totally discusting that you are falling out of public houses without me bieng there.
 
They're week 7s going for a run ashore for the day, if its sunny they wear No.1s if not they wear 3s and foulies.

I presume that the rig dress code has changed yet again. In '83 (I know, I know) we had to go ashore in 1s.

Always fun to publicly inform them that their boots are shit, and what will happen if they don't get there f*cking hands out of their pockets. :twisted:

I went ashore in October 83 as a Tiff in Rig and got spat at by 12 year olds guess their Dads had a chip on their shoulders big enough for the whole family.

We had to go shore side in rig at Raleigh in 85. Only as far as Torpoint mind you! :D

On my rig run to Guzz one Saturday afternoon, was in Woolies looking for a book to no doubt have to write drivel in for Raleigh "stuff", leant over to look at the books on the bottom shelf and two guzzettes found it funny to push me over.

I thought it was great 'cos I had been touched by girls ... -ooooohhhhhh

That was me and I wasn't twelve. I was in fact another trainee. We were taught in part 1 to spit at Tiffs. Another fine Naval tradition that has long since dissappeared :cry: :cry:
