Ah that would be the posh side of Pompey then!
Emmas what a place - only place I went too where your feet stuck to the floor before the drinking started let alone after!
Stiil it was a short walk down the river home - unless you got arrested for peeing anywhere near that damn beached sub on the way home! You can imagine the drunken conversation ' Look at that torpedo' ' That aint a torpedo its a Sub' 'Na it has to be a torpedo subs go under water! who would put one on dry land' 'Ah the ROYAL NAVY!' Gob Bless the Dolphins.
33's Clinical Sgt Maj once admitted to letting one rip on Ops on the first Gulf War which resulted in a follow through so he always went commando after that (eaier to clean up he said) this was on the plane into A Pod on a Telic Tour, he got ribbed for that all the way. Two months later I saw him & said 'Hello' as he walked by 'Fcuk Off' came the reply, looking over my shoulder in surprise and saw he had large circular brown patch in his trousers! who says lightening never strikes twice - Laughed so much I nearly joined him
They had a very sexy Matron so surgically enhanced she looked like a brunette version of Barbie - very good Arabic speaker though! We never did agree which parts of her were independantly sprung when she was on the tredmill.
Very cute acting Adj who returned from a Telic Tour whiter than when she left - don't think anyone believed she had not stayed with the rear party!
Just glad I was not RAMC those red crosses did bugger all for protection in Iraq - they never seemed to work that one out though - its just an extra aiming mark to an Iraqi!
33 was one of my best units. Nice office upstairs with views to make you stop work for ages. Previous 2IC and RSM who has just left were absolute cracking people. Current CO is also very good.
Mess is brill and having to work next to the nurses in Haslar was a hard chore
Kellogs, without further int I will assume you are a CMT and this will be your first posting !
My advice would be dont go to a Fd Hosp for your first posting as the CMT has a very limited role within a Fd Hosp and any clinical or professional development you may have been planning will be thrown out of the window.
See what other options are available, a CS Med Regt would be my first choice (an Armd Fd Amb in BAOR as it was formerly known) and as a second choice a GS Med Regt.
It all depends what you want to acheive from your first three years ?
