The idea of these watches in the RN was to break up the watch keeping cycle so that RN personnel never got the same watches two nights on the trot.
I love your 'banter' bumbat, your postings are always filled with quick witted humour, intelligent comments, information, and pleasant dialogue always a joy to read.
In your case a dogwatch, Bumbat, was to indicate that you did minimal time in the mob, thats of course if you did actually serve.
So now shot me down, Bumbat and tell me you are still in the mob having completed thirty years! :wink: :wink:
They sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, and the highest form of education.
You succeed at the first and fail on the second.
You posted 1960/1984...so lets see 24 years. Guess what if you go look for mine its the same time different dates. 1965/1989 so now we have compared our d*cks an established you are old and grumpy, why did you take umbridge? Any matelot I know would take it as banter.
Its not my fault that you are old and grumpy live with it. If you can't stand heat get out the galley, but in any event chill.
Personally I don't give a rat's asre if you like or dislike my posts, I thought the site was owned by Good/Bad CO'S. :wink:
