With one contributor well placed to indulge in Chinese Whispers, I suppose some deviation is inevitable.

Before Nintendo & other bits of electronic trickery,  kids could  amuse themselves at parties by standing in a line and pass on a whispered message to see how it turned out at the far end.  A bit like the way verbal orders are passed down from CO to RSM, then to lesser beings until they reach Gunner Bloggs who is totally confused , and can only do what he is told and get stuck into some totally idiotic task. And similarly how one thing can lead to another by these additions to a topic until the end result is nowt like the original content. How the hell did we get on to this ??????

It is known as "off topic" and is common on most forums, but if it is not accepted here I will refrain from doing so OK.

This is not as daft as it may sound.
When I was in 38 TRRA, Rhyl, we were lined up, as above, to illustrate the importance of passing a message on exactly as it was given.
It stood us in good stead when we got to a Service Regiment, when "Gunner Bloggs" was receiving Fire Orders that, potentially, meant life or death to the unit that was receiving Fire Support.

Certainly not accepted by me that you refrain, etc. Eric, lad ! And having deviated frequently myself I'm in no position to call attention to such practice........ though maybe we do cause irritation at times to whoever opened up a serious topic.

Trouble with the written word is that, unless you've got the talent for it, it's difficult to get across the intended tongue in cheek, gentle ribbing which comes more easily with speech. With your location, it was thought to be applicable to make reference to the Chinese connection, not to have a go at you. Guess I was in smartarse mode again. Sorry !

No need to be sorry, just nice to understand what is happening is all.

That's what I love about this forum. You can start talking about a location, move on to unit history, through to Bratties and currywurst sauce recipes, onto to porn and then back to unit history. It's great, that's why I like reading this:lol!: 

Anyway, 17 Port & Maritime are well known in the RLC (ex RCT) for their sporting prowess and little else. Well, they do drive boats sometimes.

I'm a great believer in staying with the original thread Nige, unlike some people on here who wander off subject all the time.

Do you live near the "Lad in the Lane" ?

Nah, I couldn't care less about threads deviating, it just makes it more interesting. Anyway, I live about a mile from 'The Lad in the Lane'. Used to be a great pub back in the 80s. Gone down hill a bit since. In fact, it's been closed a few times. Same with a lot of the pubs around Erdington. I drink in a club now, no trouble, good beer, and dominoe league on a Thursday night.

In the early 60s it was a lively jolly little pub. Sticks in my mind it's the oldest pub in Birmingham. I must google it and find out more.

I'm glad to hear that ! Now, what was this topic all about ? Bratties was it?
Must just mention that I'd run out of senf when I finished off the six pack, but found that piccalilli makes a very good substitute.

Back to maritime squaddies............ Sorry to hear that their sports and pastimes routine denies them the chance to indulge in more soldierly pursuits, but they do have a comfort battalion of nurses sent in as compensation. Expand on that please !

With reference to "Chinese whispers."

As in the famous oft quoted,

Colonel, "We are going to advance, send reinforcements."

Which by the time Bloggs gets it becomes,

"We are going to a dance, send three and fourpence."

Languages are interesting, German is very close to English in the language stakes. In Chinese no problem is Mae wantee, or they could say mae sur da = never mind that.
