    137 Airy Fairies?
     
  3. At the beginning of GW1, a Sea King took me leap-frogging up the Gulf to join my assigned ship. As we took off from Dubai, I found myself sharing the back of the cab with several sacks of Egyptian potatoes (Royal treatment even if it was only 'Jersey Royal'). After a while, we landed on ARGUS where the sacks of potatoes were offloaded and replaced with identical sacks of potatoes before we took off again and headed for HMS HERALD, the next ship on my route.

    The Pusser (or is it the Pussers?) certainly moves in mysterious ways sometimes.

    Bit of a change from when HMY was the designated hospital ship in case of hostilities. At least the casualties won't get a bollocking for bleeding all over Queenies nicely scrubbed decks.
