Navy Walt on New Tricks

#1
Watching New Tricks on telly last night, couldn't help but notice this Navy Chap, not sure if their "Advisor" on all things military was on a Naafi break or what:

The BBC have been on a downward spiral since John Noakes left to found Combat 18 and they started letting people with regional accents appear on Blue Peter.

I've seen rank insignia on the wrong way round before but having one on upside down is a new experience.

Calm down kids, he's obviously just fallen victim to another lower deck prankster. It's very common to flip people's rank slides upside down if they leave their shirt/jacket/ovies loafing.

It's also common to find penis's drawn on the inside of your cap.

Anyway, I was in the Dove in Hammersmith last year and they were filming New Tricks in the warehouse across the road, imagine my amazement when the main cast members came and sat at the table next to us and had lunch.

Unfortunately I was hammered and I'm not sure my constant whispering of "Write the feeem tune, play the feeem tune" went down well.

I have no idea who the BBC wardrobe person was on new tricks but they want a bomb up their arse for this TFU. Just spoilt the whole plot for me and they were doing so well up till then!
I particularly liked the RAF W.O. waiting for Denis Waterman to exit the building he looked the part!

Complete with SWOs cane, I have a feeling he was the real thing.

First thing I thought when I saw that pic. Bet one of his mess mates flipped the slide, a bit like knotting jacket sleeves, or adding rocks in a blokes bergan.

Ohhh what a delightful wheeze, such hilarious japes.

The Commander character can't be a diver otherwise he would have enough mirror time in to notce his error.

I once saw a young and dopey naval officer ( he was genuine, we'd just been on the same short course ) wearing uniform tropical shirt with a tie. The tropical shirt comes without a top button by way of a clue of how it is to be worn. To make matters worse, he was on a train and was asked when the buffet trolley was coming through.

Ah yes, how well I remember his Eton accent as he called on Shep to "get dine!"
