bootneck-matelot-matelot-bootneck, never the twain etc.
at least we had a good birthday party on the 28th (since 1664 it gets better every year)
and Mr S_ Fox I know you have an aversion to him but Gary Glitter was requested and played-even had one bootie dress up as him-said he was going for a chinese. (aw, he's just misunderstood!)
The next bloke that ask's me how life is in the army or if i'm in the f"cking army is going to get a slap i'm threaders with it,civvies don't know that bootnecks are in the navy and proud of the fact,c"nts. :roll:
I've lost track of the number of times you see servicemen on the news and the newsreader always refers to them as "soldiers" despite their clearly being marines/sailors/airmen. Op Fresco was the most consistently bad example. "Army on Call to Battle Fires" blares the headline, vidclip/picture shows a Chief Stoker and 5 sailors manhandling hoses around a Green Goddess.
