On Decrepid in the 90's there was a Chief Tiff who got grippo'd by some rich yank bird whilst alogside in Ft L. he must have made a really big impression as every stop we made thereafter, the minute the gangway was down the pipe was made "Chief Tiff -Visitor - Gangway" ... "Miss America" met the ship in every port right down to the Dutch Antilies. A month later coming alongside at South Railway in Proc Alpha ... standing not 6 foot from his Mrs and 2 kids ... was "Miss America" ... never saw a Tiff get back into ovies and disappear back down the engine spaces so fast! His face when he saw her was an absolute picture ... Classic "Oh Sh*t! :laughing2: Seems one of the lads had sent her an official invite! So one for the dit spinners! Ever had one of those moments??????????????
