Harry's and Garden Island. Notice the appropriately placed shit tins with dents.
The smell of the gas burner cooking up the evening goodies. Pies and Peas and redders everywhere.
The taste of the tomato soup after a gutful at the Rockers, Rex , Tilbury, Frisco, Bells, Chevron, Texas Tavern from Ten past Ten till early morning. Watching non handlers losing their pies and peas and all the nights grog in the gutter. Warries of imense proportion being swapped from one drunken sailor to another.
Staggering back into GI, ripping off the bottom of ID card and giving it to the enemy on the gate, along with a heap of advice about his heritage and birth certificate anomalies with a final thrust at how fitted he was to the job he had . Feeling better for all that and heading for the ship and your nice bunk only to find out they had removed the caisson from the dry dock and it was another two hundred and eighty five thousand steps to get to your ship.
Waking up the next morning, Sal Vital save me. Uncomfortable silence from your mess oppos gauges how good a time you had and what an arsehole you had made of yourself.
Come stepping time it was do it again
What alcohol abuse!!!!!!!!!
Bloody hell I miss it
