There was some sort of G'Daffi in Aberdeen in the early 50's. My old fella was a Gordon and him and his mate went diffy from Brig o' Don one night and headed off into the town. The story as he told me was that they bumped into my Grandad, who'd recently left the mob and my Great Uncle, who was a serving CSM at BoD. Anyway, after they'd necked a few, my Grandad asked my Dad if he was out on an overnight pass, to which the old fella replied "No, we've just buggered off for the night", or words to that effect. My Great Uncle promptly arrested my Dad and his mate and took them back up to BoD and jailed them.

It's definetly not the NAAFI from Gordon Barracks at the Bridge of Don. I think Sanchauks suggestion of Bridge St or Market St could well be right.

no steep enough for market st. and there are no hookers so its no the docks.

Thanks RMA1 and LEGZ30 for the intelligent replies to my query. To the others - I now know where to find a new asshole after digesting all your rubbish!! Why waste your time and the forum space!

Biccies - well below your usual standard :lol:

I would have thought that you would have admitted to the ARRSE populace that this was the place your Mum lost her 'purse' and that you were spawned on Union Street :twisted:

From readings of many biographies such as Bravo 2 Zulu, I have come to learn that many NAAFI premises during WWII were 'down town' to allow the sojers a chance of getting out of barracks. There was, on the other hand, the real NAAFI which is venerated on this web site to this day.
