How far back does this story go?
You spin it and we'll join in... :shock:
If he's one of the old fart's, can you nip round his drum and give him a knock, he might have fell asleep, and we will never know.
As an old piss stained fart, i can confirm that I heard sea stories of varnished turds;- some believed to be royal. Never saw any proof.
London Division RNR, Easter 1982.
Killick Scablifter on loan from one of the CTCs curled one down on the sonar access hatch in the after messdeck during the night alongside in Ramsgate.
Large mess- 2WA2-under the ground run spot.
Part of the messweep's duties was to refill the urn, collect the victuals and ensure that the sugar bowl was always kept toppers.
Before skippers rounds, the Mess LH instructs the sweeps to ensure that tea and coffee cans + millac jug are polished and the sugar bowl emptied and polished. Rather than throw away the sugar, the sweeps stops topping up the aforesaid sugar bowl and a crystallised Richard is eventually discovered lurking at the bottom of the bowl.
Since the last skippers rounds, none of the sweeps had bothered to empty the bowl, just topped it up.
No one admitted laying the cable and I don't take sugar so I didn't care. :lol:
Was on the Belfast in the late 60s when it was reserve fleet and we had a stoker from the royal yacht trying to flog us a turd in a bag saying it was passed by the Queen.
