This was too good not to share! My wife works with a lass who has recently had breast cancer. Nice lass, quite a pretty thing, well off, own house and car etc, but a little dense. Anyway, about 6 months ago whilst in hospital having tests etc, she met this fella (Royal Navy) who was being treated for a badly broken leg. Not really that suspicious you may think? Well, when questioned by her about it, it was apparently an injury sustained in Afghanistan after his ship was hit. I nearly died laughing, how did his ship get into Afghanistan anyway? I don't recall the Navy having a camel fleet (ship of the desert). Anyway, now he's better he's gone away for a few months on a submarine, as he's a Chief Petty Officer and a submarine navigator, currently on HMS Trafalgar, which Wikipedia tells me was decomisioned in 2009. I really don't have the heart to tell her, and neither does the wife, so for now we are just amusing ourselves with the stories, but now he has proposed and wants to sell his house and move in with her, I think it could be time for a reality check.
