I just passed my test for Warfare specialist on the 9th of Feb. Can anyone tell me when I should be due for Raleigh? If anyone has any good advice for what I should know during my interveiw about WS please pass it on. Thank's!
I have some postcards from the 1920s and beyond of inmates of the G Spot writing home to Mum. The most striking thing about them is that, although not grammatically perfect, their standard of written English is very impressive when compared to many contributions on RR. Infact their English was better than mine in my mid 20s!!! Of course I have long harboured a suspicion that the inmates copied their letters home from a large blackboard in their messes........ A couple of them begin:
I have just arrived at HMS.... and am enjoying my time here. My official rank here is Junior Seaman...
Your loving son...
Twins in different messes with different surnames communicating by telepathy perhaps? :roll:
An alternative explanation could be that mobile telephony was rather cumbersome in the days of yore!
