'Flash' is stereotypical of the Officer corp. To be fair most groups are. They become narrow and aggressive when criticized or poked fun at what they perceive their lessers.
Always easier when the 'lessers' readily identify themselves though. Thanks old bean and do stay away from the wardroom. There's a good chap.

Any takers? Give up your pension, hand back your lump sum, lower you salary and go away from home. On the plus side you get to wear the new uniform

That old Phrase, "An engineer is someone who can make for half a crown, what any fool can make for a fiver." In my mind is lots of Commanders (E) and Fred Dibnah, :cool:

Fixed that for you, bad engineer, there is no charge?
We are talking MOD (RN) engineers, we do elaborate as normal practice, know DIY work from us, all black masking take are prototype fixes.
