    Stank to high hell of stale diesel?

    Voice pipes, where on one occasion after blowing into it the receiver put his ear to the tube only to be met with a 'fart' from above. Duty watch I'm led to believe.
    the banba had a carbon filter system for nuclear war attack
    the fola had a battery powered bofor
    and grainne had a pre wetting system
    all were ripped apart by the paddy when they could not fix them..

    Ferdia and setanta were auxiliaries and carried A15 and A 16
    the clue being the 'A'

    Murchu didn't have a pennant number and the MTB s were numbered as per purchased.
