Am compiling a list recording the longest period of time a Royal Naval Officer or rating has spent ashore as a proportion of his/her naval service.
I currently have two 100 per cent's for officers having served over 30 years. 30 years and never once been to sea. Well!! Let me know.
No names just details please.
I've just heard that a WO at Yeovilton, retiring shortly, has spent the past 13 and a half years there.
Where have all our taxes gone?

So how's your list coming on? Or was this thread another one of your pointless bites? :roll:
