He was talking about hardships. right Nick? er I mean Sidon
Hardships on a Bomber, Unk A.? Your are joking, aren't you. All the comforts of home, living in the lap of luxury. Try an 'S' boat in any weather, surfaced or dived. :lol: :wink: :wink: :roll:

Fair one bombers were comfortable but having served on most types
of boats they were no means the easiest . 3 1/2 months dived at 200 ft
and 4 knots is so boring it drives you mad . At least on S/T boats you
have something to do .

Submariners - God's Chosen ones in the 1980s. Nowadays, an increasingly expensive irrelevance. Who smell. And have pasty skin. And .. er ... smell.

*cough*

I'll get my (brand new, already leaking, Pusser's waterproof) coat...

Negative, Deeps. They gave 6 locally built, Swedish (Kockums) . of the designed, Collins Class boats. They are 1st of class and had a bucketful of problems as you do with 1st of class, but are now showing their worth.


I'm ex RN. Born in Stepney. Took discharge in '59 in Oz and took out Oz citizenship in the '80's. Returned to UK for the 1st time last year for the unveiling of the Sidon Memorial.

Deeps - He's an Aussie on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, a Brit on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays on Sundays He is just confused. These days are changeable if Aussies or Brits are winning at some sport or other.
For the significance of Sidon, have a look at the Dorset Submariners website.
Aussie O boats are all laid up now, they have the Collins class which are Aussie built. They are one of the first Navies to allow Women to be members of Submarine crews

And on Friday evenings he has been known to be a Sheila when he/she takes Milly out for a mince. I believe that the years of sitting on the Brit/Oz fence has had a lasting effect.

Was at Singapore when one of these came alongside. Shocked when this apparition that looked like a certain Leading Stoker that we had on the boat turned out to be a "Sheila". And her overalls didn't hide the fact that there was no chance of even an audition as the lead welder in "Flashdance" 8O

Ozzies could be the first to have a female sub skipper. Keep the name of Lt Cdr Sue Brady in mind.

You can take the lad out of London but you can't take London out of the Lad. COME ON YOU SPURS :wink: :wink:

I'm sure you'll find that the Royal Norwegian Navy beat them to it - having a lady skipper, that is. Can't find a link or anything, but I think it was a few years ago now.

Deeps

I fink you and Sidon are talking different types of S and T Boats, he means the one built in WWII.

Wot has Sidon dun then, well on the 16th June 1955 a HTP Torpedeo exploded on HMS/m Sidon in Portland Harbour killing 12 of the boats crew and one RNR Doctor from the depot ship. Sidon was one of the survivors. Can you Black Cat that with a GW1 on a O boat what ever GW1 is? and flogging around on a nuke.

Thank you for that Nutty you patronizing twat, both unhelpful and unnecessary IMHO,
This is a new forum and as I see it most here are serving or have recently left, and we old gits from the sixties have an opportunity here to learn about the navy over the last 30 years, that`s if we are tolerated long enough to make a contribution. Trouble is we might not be with old farts like you around.
My auntie Mildred had a crash in her Rover and was decapitated but that don’t mean to say I can go onto the Rover forum and strut around like I own the fcuking place. So Sidon was in the wrong place at the wrong time. So was she.
They seem like a good crowd on here and your attitude that old was better is destructive, ridiculous and should not be tolerated. Personally I see your put down of deeps as particularly annoyeing, I mean how the fcuk is he expected to know Sidons service history.

Fcuk off and learn some humility then come back when you can behave yourself
