I have got to say I am not a fan. I am all for having fun , but this just makes junior officers look immature.

I think that it is bad publicity for the Royal Navy.

Fuel for the fire when it comes to the age old "RN just piss about, there's a war going on" line.

If it was interspersed with some actual shots of work it wouldn't be so bad.

Still, just a bit of fun eh?

I agree MLP. The RN are struggling as it is, this just puts the service in a bad light and will only go to show what many people have been made to believe....that the RN are not pulling their weight (which we all know is not true).

I can't watch it because the fun police at work have blocked Youtube, but I can pretty much guess that it's another lame attempt to emulate the awesomeness that was those pongos doing the Amarillo thing on Telic.

Best matelot vid on youtube?

Do a search for 'navy ice skating race' or words to that effect, if you come to a short vid of two stokers on a carrier, you're on.

It's epic.

:slow: Some of them did the mincing and camping up far too well. At least "This old hat" and "The flaming arseoles" had a bit of class. A bunch of beefers;- and I now believe all the cracks about Ipods.:evil3:

Just shows me that despite the shit that's flying around, the bods in the Navy are still the same old bombed out ******* they ever was.
Nowt to do with professionalism, just people having time for fun and not taking their selves too seriously despite the requirements made upon them.
Well done guys and girls, there's still OD's in the Navy. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:
