Theres a new erk on the dispersal and I get the job of showing him round the Avro Lincoln on a what to and not to do basis. Its a cold day and the NAAFI wagon has just been, so we take our coffee and wads up into the nose and I carry on my chat. We finish break and tidy up and before I could stop him, the newby threw his coffee dregs down what looked like a drain in the floor. It wasn't a drain, oh no. There was a bang and a thud and a ten man dinghy popped out of the wing root. The look alike drain was the flotation switch in case of a ditching at sea. The lad was put on a technical charge and had to pay Â£5 towaeds the cost of restowing the dinghy. Ken. I've got quite a few of these tale from the RAF. Interested?
