Thought about this last night cos there was feck all on tv. Loved being an AB no responsibilty if you fcuked up or came back adrift couple of days No9s (saved money for next run ashore). But for me PO was the dogs knob party time alongside, better socials than the CPO Mess more chicks and younger( but sometimes bigger). Everything stayed in the mess and the CPOs took the shit. Friday afternoon alongside in Pompey on Manchester was fun just how many teapots of CSB can you drink, bar manager used to go daft totting up the chits on Monday. Made CPO and life became much more serious lots of time keeping POs and ABs out of the shite. LH was wank, crap from the SRs and the lads.
