Stop being so grown up and sensible. :)
Ok then how we horn our skills

Out playing with Yanks, we had one of their skimmer war canoe skippers on-board. He must have been gobbing off to the old man as to how good his crew was at detecting boats, game on.
Skipper puts a little wager to yank, (value not known) that we would get right up the Jacksie of his canoe, get a visual on his prop and then cycle the whole of our crew through the control room to have a peak through the scopes. All passengers and non-coms were taken to messes and had silent state explained.
End result one very pissed off yank skipper, if my memory is working they found us just after the old man put a smoke grenade across her bows.

Sumo, I was conserving oxygen as the old Mk 3 lysers weren't all that good and didn't like O2 genny fires :)

Would that be the HP Lyser? not the most friendly bits of kit? As for O2 candles who the hell but that dangerous stuff on Boats, great when the shot gun cartridge went off OK and the candle was not damaged otherwise don EBS and fight the lethal S**T8)

Time to go home:nike::nike::1:

That would be the HP lyser. I did 3 years in the lyser shop doing nothing but Mk 3 and 5 lysers, also had a boat as wrecker with the Mk 5. Lye, luvverly stuff, especially when hot with 128 bar behind it. LP lysers were pure sex after them.

Similar dit, only Elmer not onboard. Back inboard at the debrief - chugs on about us not being able to get near him etc etc. Our Skipper produces peri-phot - 'these your screws then?'

Allegedly.

Before sending any array portion to the US I reckon that we would have been particularly interested in any USSR coupling arrangements.

ATT certain circumferential couplings failures were causing some dismay (and, ermm, 'disarray' .. :wink:)
