The thread of random good ideas. (Or make Rumrat rich thread)

did that keep you out of trouble for the whole 16 weeks?
You must have been a bad ass as I struggled to even get to the table? (no court or evidence found)
HMS Cambridge was a bit of a wobble.
What was you doing at Cambridge stoking the central heating?
I did my basic training there as a gunner and a couple of PCT's
We had a L/S there called topsy Turner. Boy did that poor so and so take some sh1te from us when he was duty and had to sleep in the block. It put me off wanting my rate.
I was never trouped for any offences onboard except when the PO caterer tried to do me for Absent from place of duty when I was gunners yeo and doing the webbing for the shore patrol as per daily orders.
I'd been put on stores party by mistake and he hated me.
I failed to hear the pipe for rounds one night when he was duty po.
He came in the dining mess and we were waiting for the movie to start. There was flying stations going on and the dining room was under the flight deck. I had flip flops on and had my feet on the table.
When I realised it was rounds, before I could stand he said "Do you put your feet on the table at home"?
I told him no and we didn't have helicopters landing on the roof either.
Even the duty hocifer laughed and he had a real sad on with me ever after.
I even refused the Tanky job because I dare not work under him. Sad times.:(

One night there our favorite hooky turns us all out in full kit with belts gaiters studded boots the lot and with them tin hats they had in ships.
Falls us in and double marches us towards the gate which as you know is unattended as it was an open camp.
When we are out of earshot the word goes around the ranks to pretend we cant hear him when he shouts his next order. As we approached the gate he bellows about turn.
We don't.
The noise is horrific and its about 2 in the morning.
As we doubled through Wembery hamlet (no longer a sleepy hamlet) there's lights coming on all over the place.
Topsy finally catches up half way to Gus and he's on a pussers red devil.
We were knackered the next day, but when the complaints started pouring in he never again suggested a moonlight stroll through suburbia.

I was in Cambridge 88 on NI training - 'fighting' in full kit up and down those bloody steep slopes - I have never been so completely knackered (or fit) in my entire life

I was in Plymstock MQs then so at least I got to go home unless we were on night ambush/dicking

‘96 I was there and all I remember was ‘cardiac’ hill! Horrible place, full of shouty types.

I only made the dizzy heights of ‘crowned’ killick before departing.
And, I achieved that rank twice too! I love a run ashore.

WTF 's a crowned killick, (OOW crowned you with his telescope coming back onboard pissed and squaring up to him?). I was a four years undetected crime killick when I departed too..

Was passed for PO etc. Completed POLC, passed board, blah blah, but never was placed on signal. So, after 12 years, I fooked off still a killick.
 
Being of the fraternity of stokie boys, advancement was quite swift compared sandscratchers etc.....and lots of sea time.
That was circa 60/75. After that don't know as I went outside.
Opinion was that wafu's should not have proper sailor suits as so many never went to sea.....:) :)

Incoming.....:)
