Where did you meet your wfe

Met my wife in Dubai 1988 she was an expat I was on NP1600 RFA Dilligence alongside in Dubai for almost 6 months moved in to her apartment lived the expat life then she came back to the UK having given up everthing for jolly jack. She has put up with so much sh*t over the years but after 2 Gulf Wars stronger than ever.
 
We were both Sea Cadets on HMS Belfast, she was 13 and I was 15. We didn't go out together straight away, but it was love at first sight for me anyway :)

We now have three kids and have been married for 15 years.

Bless! :thumright: When I was in the RNXS circa 1991-93 we used to meet in the Sea Cadets training area on HMS Belfast* - I gave my first ever lecture there... and then retire upstairs for a drink or three. :pissed: Lammers, tell me: why weren't the gash bins highly polished? :bball:

*Of course I wouldn't be able to squeeze through the hatch nowerdays! :biggrin:
 
He was my instructor on BSSC. There is some nasty rumour I was running around Horsea Island in ovvies with no knickers.

This is not true at all, I am a lady and I did have knickers on.

My understanding of that statement is that it was the ovvies that were AWOL then :dwarf:

Met Mrs. Dinger one tuesday night at the Whaley club in 1967.Went over from Dolphin with a mad mental stoker(Rawley, hope your still in the land of the livin)Trapped the misses and he trapped her oppo,both civvie birds who hated matelots.I explained to mrs.Dings that I wasn't keen on the bastards either and had only visited said Whaley club to see the group(Dave Dee,Dozy,Beaky,Mick and Titch)Anyway arranged to meet her on the following Thursday for dinner,we had a walk along the seafront,bag of crisps and a can of coke,then Isuggested the movies. What about dinner says Mrs.D. You just had it I says. Take me home she says,so I did,arranged to meet on the Sat following,we did(I was convinced she wouldn't be there and nearly didn't turn up meself fcuckit hindsight eh)anyway, I says would you to spend the rest of your life with a man like me,and she said she would.I didn't mean me,just a man LIKE me.Too fluckin late we were engaged that same day married 7 months later and it was only when we went to pompey registrars to post our bans and arrange the licence that she found out I was not only a matelot but a SUBMARINER to her the most feared and distasteful of skates.41 years later and 3 baby Dingers and seven grandbaby Dingers she seems to be getting used to havin an old matelot hangin around.



UP SPIRITS..............SPLICEEEEEEEEERS!!!!!!!! :wav:
 
Met mine after leaving the mob. I never wanted to commit whilst serving.
Unfortunately, after 20 odd lovely years together she passed away at the tender age of 43 leaving me with our daughter aged 11 then. Before she died she instructed me to meet someone else, but she must be like this, like that and like the other. She laid down very exacting requirements bless her.
Well, after a while the very person she described came along. I don't really believe in too much but it was like she had sent her. Spooky as she likes the same things and even takes me to and from the pub just like my wife did.
We are still together after 5 years and life is great.
