Thank goodness I know my Morse Code. This stems from spending entire school holidays on my Dad's ship. Err, tug really. Still, nevertheless. Anyway, Pete is saying 'H'. For those of you who don't know, text speech (c u 2moz etc) has been officially deemed uncool and in its place the youth of today are using Morse Code. And I've just been told that using Morse Code has now gone out of fashion and they're using semaphores. Why Pete is saying 'H' I don't know. Help Yourself? Henry Cow? Cow & Chicken?

Let's be clear on this, were you on the ship or the tug?
These are my principles.  If you don't like them I have others.

You can judge a person on how they treat those who can do nothing for them

I think we'd need some video evidence wouldn't we? Of Nick on the ship that is.

Could do without video of Nick on the tug.
Boldly going.......

Ok Ok. Let's be precise. It was a tug working out of Sheerness when I was about 10 or so then a ship working out of Yarmouth in my early teens. For practical reasons, the video evidence was a lot later.

HMS Dinafore?

I'd nearly forgotten about that.....'featuring The Pilates of Penzance' to give it it's full title.
