Shore to Sea

Looking at andym's signature made me chuckle.

"SEA!I didnt join the Navy to go to bloody Sea!"

It put me in mind of the Argies invading the Falklands, somewhere off northern Scotland.

At the time I was a member of the torpedo trials unit, travelling around Scotland living in hotels on full subsistence. Then I received a sea draft to NP 2010.

"War? War? I can't afford to go to bloody war!"

LOL, well i did expect some seatime other than the Gosort and IOW ferries,but none was forthcoming!
