Channel 5 on demand will have the series, if you must view it, though its not very pleasing on the eye :roll: :roll: . Noticed you are thinking about joining up as a Chockhead :D The documentary "Sailor Hms Ark Royal 76" is the bizz. Download it from, The Box. bz website :wink: :wink: :wink:

life as a Chockhead

Sit in you kitchen. Call your mum Chief, collect the mail from the letter box, pop to the shop for her, Answer stupid question from your younger siblings. Drive your kid brothers tractor to the refuel section for a top up. Check your dads oil and water on a daily basis.

Very similar to the job of Reggies runner that you will most prob become.

Yeah, but it shows life in the navy before he was even born (probably).

Have just started watching Warship currently showing on Ch5 Monday evenings.

I am sorry to say that once again a professional service is being made to look rather foolish at times by the media. I have absolutely nothing against the RN, you do a great job, however why is it that it does just not look right.

Could it be that they have been very good at picking the subjects, not very bright are they, espcially the Matron, telling her girls not to look at the dead body's face, girlies crying. Get a bloody grip.

As for sailors who are late for a parade, saying they are late back from shore leave, we call that AWOL, f****** ball them out, instead of letting them just slope in at a snails pace.

Obviously I will keep on watching as any documentary about the Armed Forces is father better viewing than the other crap they put on the box these days.

Well thats the modern RN for you , :D i suspect that the answer you will recieve from the guys/gels serving now is and i quote "we saved two ships from sinking and we wont lose a war cos we bimble in late for a muster or late from leave", :wink: i think i will put me flak jacket on and maybe some anti flash, 8)

Did I detect a slight sheen on the white tropical shoes? Have they now gone like dancing pumps? I reckon regular black ones would look a lot less daft, and a darn sight more practical.

Now I am no longer serving, and don't have to do anything other than collect my dosh (thanks all you working class) I think pink with fluffy bobbles would be as good as any.
It would look quite ridiculous, but would give us a laugh, and something for the "in my days " to really crack on about.
Failing that, whatever they like. 8O :D :D :wink:

I sincerely hope the working class continue to oblige you :lol:
ps They looked ridiculous in my days as well. Plus, having very nasty leather soles they slid all over the place. I remember using them only once, and that was more than enough.

Having watched this weeks episode I was surprised to find that marines don't actually like Ships, even to the fact they don't think much of the Senior Service.

Mind you though the commentator twice called the females on board WRENS, now I though like the Army they too had dispensed with calling the female service a different name ???

Anyway I di think that the female Army Air Corps pilot was rather attractive.
