Isn't it someone who does 'Operations' in the medical branch? What's the word... oh yes, a Surgeon. :angel12:
Yes and a good -Looker too :lol: :lol: :lol:

Aircrew swan about looking scruffy in their unwashed grow bags, whilst objecting to engineers wearing their daily changed overalls in the mess...

So the wardroom does have something common with SR's messes then, dabbers in skanking 8's dripping about us in ovies.

Why do engineers change their overalls daily? Lets face it they do no physical work and modern engine rooms hardly cause copious quantities of perspiration. :oops:
Perhaps it due to them falling over and crawling back to the cabin on hands and knees after a nights imbibing. :p

Slim, when were you last in a "modern" engine room shipmate? My space on last deployment was a steady 47 C during the day. Quite warm even for you fu*kers on sweat pay on the flight deck. :wink:

Oh, go on then, I'll ask since no-one else has...

Can we have a picture of it & why not use the lavvy (heads) like everyone else?
