Your dead right buddy in what you say.
I for one am glad I never signed on, on reflection.
I know its a lot easier to get out now a days. When I was in you signed
your life away at the tender age of fifteen, and there was no chance of
getting out till you had done your wack.
Looking back I remember a young lad who couldn't take it. He was a
nice gentle sort, not at all like us ruffians. His parents tried everything,
wrote to the News of the World and all sorts. As he was a gentle soul,
others used to pick on him, and he ended up hanging himself.
Very sad in a rough and brutal life as it was then. I definately think that
it brutalised us, and thats obviously what they wanted to do.
As you say we believed it, and enjoyed it, because thats all we knew.

G'day all.

Aye you are right there "H", there are some guys especially if they joined as either Boy or Junior seaman, [or sailors] which ever is the correct name now in this time of enlightenment, who should have been allowed to come out with an honourable discharge as unsuitable, but nothing bad written on their service documents.

We had a poor wee Junior seaman in the TAS mess on one of the ships, and the poor wee bugger went out the Far Flung with us, but when we arrived back to Guz, there was some big NP'men, and RPO's on the Jetty and he was told just after we secured to the Jetty: That his service was no longer required!!. Another guy, went the same time, he deserted in Hong Kong, went over the border to China, stayed at a Collective Farm or whatever they were called, for a week before he realized that he had made a blue, and came back to the ship. He only received No.9's for this offence. All the cruise he used to be reading Karl Marx, Chairman Moe, and all that guff.

So both him and the wee junior seaman, were just taken off the ship,i.e. escorted by the patrolmen, not even allowed to pack their kit, it was packed and sent ashore to them, where ever they were until the were sent out of Jagos Mansion's, I'm not sure of the young fella, but the A/B had the corner of his papers torn of, so that wouldn't do him any good

We never even found out if he did any time in either Colchester, or Whale Island DQ's.

There definately are some guys who will never make sailors as long as their duck runs point downwards

Trouble is most of the old school Naval Officer thinks he is being one of the lads if he addresses you in what he euphamistically thinks is a 'chummy' way!

The other one is "sonny"! the three badgeman calls you 'sonny' because hes your seadad and is entitled too - and you accept it without question! The sub lieutenant calls you that and wonders why he gets a mouthful, for fucks sake he's a year younger than you how can he call you son? Numpty!! :(
