  2. I thought the first principle of being a sailor was staying in the boat?

    Indeed, and for two of them to fall over together is slightly unusual.
  4. Obviously, it is now so unusual for one of our remaining frigates to go to sea that jolly jack isn't used to the ships' motion.
  5. Could have been checking the wheels :D
  6. They do a lot of things together...........alledgedly
  7. Hope they are OK, but their iPods will be ruined.
  8. Scousers then.
  9. Maybe they jumped in the hope of being picked up by Iranians ... would have got a new suit out of the deal.
  10. You just made me cry .
  11. Sometimes they fall overboard and on the odd occasion the sea comes and gets you.
  12. Not if they were in the middle of coupling.

    That'll explain why they both got drenched in salty froth then.
  14. FFS read the full story before posting will you?

    It appears that they were practising for the Inter Fleet Strictly Come Dancing competition, on the helicopter deck, and during the now famous Passa Doble 'Sargeant Drag' the ship lurched slightly to starboard and they fell overboard. Unfortunately the one in full sequinned dance dress with all the frills and lace on it was overcome by the emotion of the whole event and had to be revived. A Navy spokesman - fighting back tears - addressed reporters saying, they were real contenders, we had such high hopes for them. We were even thinking of pitting them up against the 3 Para Mortars formation team. Already the Royal Navy switchboard has been inundated with near-frantic RAF Regiment members who had been hoping to challenge the Navy to a 'Black Bottom' in the new year.
  15. And why the guy still in hospital is having his stomach pumped.
