    ta...but given you're in Oz I'm guessin' you ain't gonna be front & centre !
     
  4. If anyone attends, can they ask what happened to the log book of HMS Conqueror?
     
  5. Its being looked after by Lord Lucan.
     
  6. That has piqued my curiousity, what happened to HMS Conqueror's log Book?
     
  7. Vicious circle.

    I too would love to know a synopsis about the evening if anyone is going...and could post?
     
  8. Don't you watch old war movies?

    The log book was fired out of the torpedo tubes together with some old life jackets, a spare matress, the manky oil out of the deep fat fryer in the galley, the senior rates' inflatable rubber woman and the XO's entire porn collection. As iPods hadn't been invented at the time, a couple of Julio Iglesias LPs from the wardroom went in too.

    Inevitably, the depth charging Argies were fooled into believing that Conqueror was destroyed and went on their way. This trick always works and it's taught on day one of the Perisher course.
