NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - you told him!!


Anyway, this is just one reason why DE Regs are a bad idea - they do not even speak the lingo, let alone know how the RN functions in real life.
I did over 33 years and never really sussed that one out, RN logic is up there with female logic (almost) :oops:

Really? At least we had BRs to give us a bit of guidance!
BR's written by tech experts based on the manufacturers recommendations and therefore, with caveats, useful.

Slapping in for a Guzz draft because your family live there and getting Pompey, whilst your Pompey oppo gets Guzz is Naval logic.

Funny story about Service Police. I was on det in Germany and drinking in the Malcolm Club at Wildenrath. Anyway the drinking went on far too long at the manager couldn't get rid of everyone and the RAF police were called.

Going back a few years earlier I was in a high School in N Wales and one of my class mates had really bandy legs and was know by the nickname Gary Gay Legs :) He joined the RAF Police when I joined the Navy.

Going back to the night in he walks with the rest of Coppers, I shouted out.... Funkin Hell its Gary Gay Legs!!! Obviously he wasn't happy however his fellow coppers thought it was the funniest thing!!! Never bumped into him again, however his RAF career is now marred like his school life :0
Another thread drift:
After leaving the mob in 02 I spent a fair bit of time going out to Wildenwrath doing acceptance on the new SWT Desiro trains as my company (Siemens) has built a train testing track facility using the perimeter of the of the air base and all the trainsheds and offices etc are where the hangars and maintenance facilities were
They used to have a picture of the new facility superimposed on the airfield
We were lucky enough to be victualled in the nearby town of Erkelenz which was a great night out, quite a few expats had stayed on after the bases were shut down.
Apparently quite a few of the UK train drivers who were sent out there for training frequented the local nightfighter emporium in Wegberg

An extremely valid point, S-B, sadly lost on whoever dreamed up the context, and curiously appropriate in the context of my little time-honoured joke .

Oh, and cheers, Dredd.....:rolleyes:

Well it isn't the same muppet that dreamed up and pushed through (against stiff opposition from those that actually knew) the feed of chutney that was OM Branch..... as I know who he was.

Spent a s*it load of time there in the early 90's with 360 Squadron (Canberras).

I believe they also used the Hangars later as Film Studios? I recall hearing about a Joan Collins movie filmed there?
