Good one, Tom. His mate next to him ( reckon he's the pilot ) looks like he needs something a bit stronger!

John I am not in the least surprised at some of the grimmaces caused when they sipped a typical cuppa NAAFI tea, it was however usually nice & hot, can anybody confirm if tea was ever laced with bromide :lol: :lol:

Wasting his time if she is wearing regulation knickers! Years ago when Max was a boy I remember one of WAAFs saying that the knickers were a devil to get off. The Officer present said rather dryly "That my dear is precisely the idea, now the Americans have joined us".
