You know it can't be a true story - because it says the Jenny was chipping the capstan!

And it's more likely that Page 3 would have given her a wide on.....;-)

Oi I chipped a few things in my time! Oh, capstan………that not suppose to be ‘sanding’…………….primer, under coat then over coat, add the grease and have to do it all over again the next week!

Women at sea. The whole bloody lot of them have more dits than a rampant morse key and are harder to control than the lads. ;-)

It's always great to hear the "who shagged who" dits the first day back at sea after a run ashore.

Just wish that they'd learn that turning on the waterworks when I say no to a M&M or days SGL won't change my mind!
 
Nothing funny about women at sea, they may have had em onboard at Trafalgar but as far as I am concerned they are a pestilence and are only suited to shore jobs. Praise the lord I took the liberty boat to pension before this madness came into being.

Plenty of problems when Wrens first went to see, and some of them caused by 'old fashioned' SRs giving in to easily to Wrens who couldn't get the job done because they weren't putting in the effort (this from several Wrens I know).

15+ years down the line things seem to be a lot better, as you'd expect.
 
Last year out the Gulf RMBT board a ship, once secure Jolly Jack comes along to do his bit one of the party being a Wren, It's a little bit choppy and she refuses to climb the ladder onto civvie vessel, what happens? Yes you know the answer, sweet foxtrot alpha. Now if that had been one of the lads we all know it would have been a different story. As stated in my previous post best place for them is in barracks sorting out your pay.

finknottle, you've kind of missed the point! There are not enough young people joining the Andrew now - let alone only lads. If we hadn't made the decision to let women serve at sea we would now be stuffed.

My experience is that they are as good as the lads - and sometimes better. If your girl couldn't do the job then she should have been taken off the boarding party and someone else should be doing the job. I've seen lads bottle it as well!

I used to think that 'it's a management problem, sort it' was a cop out. I now know that it isn't. Women work if the baggage of the past is left on the jetty.

:!: Enough of a rant from me, but it's what I think!
