Two come to mind that I've never forgot. 1 Not a bad cricket player when I joined up,[captain of the village youth team etc] played in the Andrew and was offerred a chance in Pompey to play in the Portsmouth Commmand Probables and Possibles match. Took 7 wickets for 42 runs fast bowling and thought I'd cracked it but! At tea break as we all trooped in, a two and a half ringer told me they would bring my tea out to the veranda!As I was the only rating in the team apart from a CPO GI I was not allowed to mix with them for a tea break.They welcomed the CPO but not me. Refused to play cricket again after that. Snobbery was endemic in the 50's and 60's. Next one was being ordered to play the piano at all officers cocktail parties,never offered a drink for that either,good job there was some canny officer stewards keeping me topped up. Kept having cut fingers after that everytime a party was coming up. Just looking back a bit and wondered if any still have green rubs and what where the worst of some in the past.
