Picture this Sept 1990 YORK in the Gulf (by itself) Sadam had just invaded Kuwait in August (we were alongside in Dubai fcuked that run ashore up) We are on patrol in what is now the NAG in defence watches, hiding among the oil platforms gathering intelligence I'm off watch in my scratcher Port side cabinf fwd when I hear the seadart magazine hydraulics flash up below me so I hop off me pit in me ovvies go into the Ops Room to find out what the fcuk is going on 2 contacts on 992 at 15 miles 550 mph skipper shouts at my opposite number the the Missile Director "Load the Launcher" and the fcuking missiles jam in the hoist. Visual can't vis ID cos they are so low skipper actually called the MD a useless cnut (bit of stress there then) 3 miles away Phalanx in AAW Auto they turn out to be 2 US F15s out of Bahrain no IFF they don't know how fcuking lucky they were that day Jester would have been dead as a doddo. Me I shit myself my daughter was 3 months old back home and I had only seen her for 3 days. They don't pay us enough money sometimes do they.

Could have been worse, mate. It could have been wolf. A fire and a miss would have been bad news all round.

It was a good dit.

Wolf is for homos due to it being on gay ships, and I've never seen it hit anything.

Dart is for winners because it is on men's ships, the mighty 42.
