Only CT's do morse nowadays shipwreck (standfast visual by the seaman specs) and I do remember taking the morse (yes, sad I know) and in one of the episodes (I think the second one of the latest series) it was 'Strictly Come Dancing is rubbish'.

Sorry to disappoint shippers. But can still read barred CW at 22wpm and transcribe via keyboard. Gave up smoking 3 years ago, but I bet I can still roll some tickler at the same time as typing/writing it down.

I do so wish you RO(W)'s would stop flattering yourselves.

Left in 75 ex boats can still read morse at a reasonable speed and I am a licenced Radio Ham. So there are still some of us old gits about. By the RO(W) were gollies not smart enough to be sparkers and too smart to be Buntings.
