    Perhaps you'd like to rephrase that, GR. Shurely it would be muscle that would be contained in the boxer shorts?

    as i say it was one of the old swords that was brought on the trip for willie and it was in bits rust and years of brasso... my sole job for the week was to get it back in some shape sat on the flight polishing away and getting a tan... when we arrived the only one allowed with a sword was the captain... poor old willie..

    Yup! Poor old 'boxcar'.

    Actually, YHF, thats not me in the photo! I was never a 'batman' and I certainly would not put myself up for ridicule. I do that for every one else.

    ah ye have it all wrong let me explain a sword is an item of ordanance so it was the gunnery dept on the ship that was responsible for the maint of same .. a lot of our time was spent below decks with cleaning of weapons etc. so when the opportunity arose we got out into the sun with jobs like this and made the best of it... i seen a few fellows dressed as batman on the ship but thats a different story yhf no pictures are available of test pilot they are all censored only to be shown after 21.30

    have no idea what became of 'fwankie' but had served with him on Eithne. I was on leave and had decided to go to London to visit a few muesuems. We were in the middle of Kings Cross at rush hour and next thing he must have spotted me and over the crowds could be heard....'hayyyyyyy Murpheeeeeeee Boy how ya doing..Looked around and here he was pissed as a fart...but his powers of recognition were intact
    Time for another break I think......

    Gosh! I hope he is keeping ok. He was the one who lost his false teeth while 'gawking' over the side once on Eithne.

    I notice Jimmy G. there also. He was a mech on board.
