You are too old Mick.
Get in the messdeck again and you would think you are with your grandkids.

Aye H - that goes for all of us!! :(

Still at least we can look back on when we were the "Jack the Lads" going ashore on a Saturday night in No 1's, cuffs turned up, good shape to the "flat aback" hat with the "tiddly bow" to the front - ready for anything!!

Then the on Sunday gathered round the rum fanny drinking our tot, sharing Queens and having an "action replay" of last nights good run!!

Happy days :) :) :)

Was just thinking of around the rum fanny next day.
When we were in Rosyth we used to have a bet on who could pick up the ugliest
female and all meet at Fairlees at the end of the night.
The girls never knew what was going on and were never mistreated. Infact for
most of them it was probably the only time they had a date.
Next time as you say in the messdeck at tottime the one who had the ugliest deemed
by popular opinion got "Gulpers" off everyone.

As I became a Great grandad 2 times over in the last week, you would be right H. We seem to be getting to bloody old.
I am in your territory for the month of August. Well! nearby, in Childers.

Aye H I well remember the type of run you are talking about - THE ROPY TROPHY - we used to do a similar thing at Culdrose in 63 at the Saturday night PZ (Penzance) hop.

I had a girlfriend there for a short while and I used to call her "Sabs" - she had a figure like Sabrina and a face like Sabu!!

The women never knew what was going on Mick, and were treated with
upmost respect and dignity
