  2. Just " Doing it anyway " might have been an option before you announced it to the World on an internet forum!!

  9. What happens is that at first one incompetent arsehole by accident worms his or her way to the top. Said arsehole has several good mates who then promotes cos they are his or her mates. Eventually the job is run by arseholes. Works perfectly well for governments after all.

  11. You know the score mate. The captain was later in his career promoted to Admiral, I kid you not. Dont know what happened to the poor young subby who was passing distance over the radio though lol. Best part about it was we had been in the med all summer and visited many many ports and countries and ended up in fabulous Gib as it was in those days for weeks working tropical routine on 2 hour working days with 22 off in the bars etc etc Absoloootely fantastic days!!
  12. Just to add a bit. Straight after repair we went into guzz and stored ship and went up the ice were we were rammed 3 times by gun boats doing more damage to the poor ship. I will post a bit of you tube taken up ther when I was on the ship at the time. Fantastic times.
  13. It's nothing new, gone on for years, long B4 soshal Meena report everything. In the mid seventies I was on HMS Andromeda out the med. We did a stern berth in Izmir. Stern berths are very unusual for British warships. I was on the quarterdeck holding a rattan fender with oppos to lower o er stern to come alongside, it's a road, not a jetty and concrete edge. Ossifer with hand held radio passing distance to bridge re distance. Long story short we didn't stop and hit doing iirc 7 or 8 knots 😩 I had dropped my fender as did others and ran up the waists a second or so before impact. We bounced forward after overrunning the concrete by about3 feet. massive damage including props and shafts. Fender was just dust on top of the sea. Limped to dry dock in Gib for several weeks and repairs in the millions lol. Was typing lol

  24. I went to England for the first time in 2 years last week for a few days. I ain't going again in a hurry. Saw one of grandsons tiny over priced terraced house in Hampshire and braved the traffic. Very pleased to get back to my much cheaper detached house in beautiful west Wales.
