Well 1955 looks much nicer than 1951 because colour had been invented. I often think those people involved in WWI, WWII and Korea would have been happier if they hadn't had to lead a monochrome existence.

PS: Any ideas why the Wren 'volunteer' swamped the Solent so badly? Looks like she'd been drinking Mountain Dew.

At least by the early 70's bone domes were introduced!!!

I have a pic somewhere of a Wessy 5 in Malaysia rotors running weapon loads with the pilots in whites!! (shorts & shirt!!!!).

Decorating at the mo, will dig it out scan and post shortly!!!!

Back on track, Sproule Net, remember the war cry Scouse? "Over the bar and in the net" It was a twat to unfold and deploy from the cabin of a Wessex.

Blarts aside, it's interesting to think that the Spitfire was still operational when the Whirlwind was used for SAR. Only six years before the ditched pilots were rescued by RAF launches during the war years.

Sorry for the thread drift....

Has that lady in the middle got her blarts out?

Of course she has, it's what one comes to expect as a WAFU and that is why after training you get issued a huge sh*#ty stick with which to beat off (some) of the clunge or else even less work would get done by the master race.

This is true, as a PO Stoker Harrier Pilot (First Class) serving on Illustrious whilst visiting New York, I had to use the said stick on many occasions. There were times when I pretended to be just a plain old Harrier Pilot so I could have my beer in peace.

What is it about a man saying that he is a Fleet Air Arm pilot which makes women flock in this way?

I remember when at Culdrose, visiting the the RAF airsea rescue launch base many times, especially if we needed a bunk for the night. Good group of lads and always gave the fire station crews a warm welcome.

You were probably the only people that would talk to them!!!!!!

Maybe so Waspie, but the inter-service rivalry was just banter, it still didn't distract from us having some good laughs, their fags and beer was as good as any other.
