Seemed like a common term to me all those years ago. Can't say I ever called it the mob, just the pusser.UncleAlbert said:dunkers said:Dabs. You were in exactly the same shoes as Nicholson once,
Fraid not Dunkers, the pratt is conning you, see he`s never been in the navy. He just wishes he was, sad twat.
I first thought he was using wrong terminology when he said , `Traveled all over the world during my 35 years with the pusser.`
He should have said â€œwith the Andrewâ€ or â€œin the mobâ€ not pusser.
So I looked at his given Off no. to see when he joined and it worked out at around 1985.
I don`t know why these sad pretenders bother, Jack has his own phrases and humer and anyone trying to copy them stands out like a sore thumb.
Of course he is welcome to come back and fight his corner but in the meantime I would suggest the mods give his 15 postings the Oxygen thief tally as a lesson to others.
As far as my official number is concerned, I honestly can't remember giving one and would have no need to, but if I have I would say that any number starting with a P was way before 85. The RN became computerised around 73 and all ratings went D thereafter.
I might be a sad old twat as you point out and I may get a bit foul mouthed when I have drank too much, but I was brought up in a messdeck where coarse language didn't seem to mean a lot in my days. Nonetheless, I now realise that this site doesn't run like a messdeck.
I've had my caution from JD and I've sent young Nick a PM regarding the matter. So, as far as I'm concerned this serial is over FINEX.
Just to remind you Dabs this is a copy of your official number that you entered on this site.

flynavy said:Its been asked on the ARRSE sight so it really should be asked here...................what number are you ie the first 3 we can tell who's salty and who's not,
Me i am a D214
Nutty, you will notice that the official number belongs to someone called Flynavy and my dit was simply a question, ie: What happens if your number starts with CMX? I have never posted my service number.What happens if your number starts with CMX, do you still put the first three numbers in, ie 679
As you can see it was posted on 22/02/2006 at 11.42 pm. Nobody forgets their official number even after 33 years even my wife remembers mine.
If you ever joined then that puts you about 1986/7 not certain how you got 34 years service. So a Walt it must be. UA has got it correct unless he has evidence that he would like to share.
