Hi I'm new to the site, found it by accident just before Krimbo, and I've enjoyed reading most of it. I'm an ex submariner, served on Porpoise (1st Commission), Sea Scout, Astute and Auriga all D/E, so I have a few dits, I would like to know about your best Sods Opera (s) On the Porpoise in the George at Inverary, an exsubmariner ( very successful civvy) put Â£10 in the kitty (then 100 pints) because that was one thing he missed and he wanted his very broadminded wife to see one, strange we didn't get thrown out. On the Porpoise in Londonderry (now Derry) the fwd seamans mess Tea Swindle had too much money in it. So it was 12/6p per man in Daltons Bar, when that shut it was off to the Embassy Ballroom (it got burnt down). That was a great night. I had only been on the boat for 2 weeks and had paid in just 2 shillings ie. 10p. Every Sat and Sun in the Bin at HMCS Stadacona dinnertime and evening when the boats were in. Everyone put 1dollar in the kitty whether you were staying or not. We had to march back to C Block the long way because the captain's wife didn't like submariners.
