Rules when on leave?

#1
Hi I was just wondering what are the rules when you are granted leave. Do you have to be available at short notice and do you have to stay in the country?

I remember being recalled to the ship early, got to love Matelots dripping when they get back on board when that happens lol

The unwritten rule, never answer the phone. :wink:
Affirm, unknown number calling you during leave? Think I'll leave that. I also think I'll turn off my answer phone. Or put your "Special" phone number on your leave request form, you know, the one you have for those "freinds" you meet.

Not that I, as a professional, hard working Senior Rate in Her Majesty's Royal Navy would condone such things, indeed if any of you cnuts do it I'll turn you in.

Because a phone rings it does not have to be answered, and they all come with an off button. Her majestys fleet will sail on happily without you, enjoy your leave.

Private telephones were unheard of in my day and mobiles and computers were in the realms of science fiction. Any body old enough to recall Dick Tracey and his wrist two way radio? My paren ts did not have a telephone until 1964. I untill 1976.

Yes they lost their king and the little Mermaid all in the course of a month.
But run ashore? Yes all that church, church, and more church.

Ok the war office has cleared off now, so fcuk the church bullsh*t and remember all that sh*ggin, and my appearance on stage with that bird, (yes I was a one night porn star) and that film snow white and the seven dwarfs. Friggin Mint. :twisted: 8O :D :D
