We've had quite a few requests for this so, ta-dah... enjoy and a formal welcome to the RFA even though you've been here for ages.
Dont suppose it was anything to do with double pay for the RFA guys???? when we used to RAS with you on a Sunday :roll: The Skipper of the Vic used to change the days round in the week for you, So any day was a Sunday that we RAS ed with you :wink: :wink: Happy days :lol: :lol:
Ahh double pay, now that was good but stopped in '88, if it was still going i'd have this vastly inflated mortgage paid off with the sunday RAS's we do now.

Good to see the RFA lads (and Lasses ?) onboard...had a mate of mine who joined your service after leaving the Andrew. He has nothing but praise for you, and so do I. Had many a RAS onboard the Centaur and Bulwark (first commish), lets hear (see) more RFA ditties please....
Had a good time when I was on Dilipig as Upholder spare crew. Had my own cabin with en-suite, best 4 months I'd ever had at sea with some good parties in the RFA messes

I remember being shouted at by an RFA rating once at raleigh,problem was i was an ignorant b*sterd them days and had no idea what RFA stood for, couldn't work out whether he was an RAF or a Reggie of some sort,so said "sorry sir" after calling him that though i kind of figured out that it was a bit of an over statement,he left all satisfied and smilling like a cheshire cat that just got the milk,and the silly sod couldn't tell coz i wasn't wearing any epaules,he just thought that i was a runaway from some RFA seaman class,and came to drag me off with him.

Hello people :wave: I am trying to join the RFA but have been talking to the guys on the RN Forum and they just said I was on the wrong site after them learning my life history of how I have managed to Ba**s up my interview on Monday (if you are by any ways or means curious Zzzzzzz ) it is under 'Interview Nerves' :) Hope to talk to you exciting people and learn more about RFA and you guys xx

Hello to you all, I'm an RFA Deck Cadet currently at Fleetwood Nautical Campus. Introductions feel weird this long after being on the forum but what the hell!

Cut'n'pasted into this RFA Forum - any information will be much appreciated

Found this elsewhere - can anyone help?

We have received the following from SAMA82. If anyone can help please email: [email protected]
SAMA 82 Office are trying to trace a veteran

T J Baker – Fort Austin

We have been contacted by Mr Andy Kellman (Scotland 01436 ??????) who has discovered a South Atlantic Medal in a box in his attic, when he recently moved into his new house in Helensburgh Scotland.

The medal belongs to a T J Baker – Fort Austin. No other details known. Unfortunately, we do not have any contact records for Mr Baker in the SAMA office, therefore we are asking if anyone knows him or has contact with his family, to please get in touch with Mr Kellman through RFAA. He would dearly love to return the medal back to Mr Baker.”

It was found by the guy who just moved in?

Call me Inpector Clueseau, but is it possible that it belongs to the guy who just moved out?
