Gawd JD wot was that about?
I remember 'ship keeping' on trusty Troubridge but wot scam was that?
I remember being in the krapp on trusty 'T' but I thought that was another 'incident.
No I was never in the pooh on Intrepid I was a trusted member of society on there. A reverred Leading hand and killick of the greenies mess. Hardest bloody job in the world out the FES working tropical routine trying to get the 'erks' turned too at seven in the morning when they had only arrived back on board half hour earlier!!
Happy days - not!!
