At one time, speciality officers had a coloured ring between the rings of gold braid on their sleeve, a practice that has now I understand been discontinued. Medical officers had a red band, leading to a joke that is presumably now redundant.
Dizzy blonde at party to handsome young officer, "So tell me, what do those rings on your sleeve mean?"
Officer, "I'm a naval surgeon actually".
Blonde, "Goodness, how you boys do specialise these days".
Happy new year to blondes everywhere.

Hello everybody. I just want to say that this is the best set of people that one could ask for. All ranks and ratings from top to bottom are  polite, helpful, enthusiastic and charming. Our moderators are superb, take a bow all, many thanks to you.
Our volunteers are just brilliant, no names but from the world class expert who appears to know the names of every stoker who ever lifted a shovel to the Pole who tackles log books in appalling scribble without fear, I raise a glass to you all. Where are the trolls, the moaners, the pessimists? Somehow, they didn't sign on.

Many years ago I joined the Navy, for a career that proved to be all too short, for reasons that don't matter now, but on my first and only ship I once raised my voice to offer an opinion.
An elderly PO (i.e probably 45) looked at me with scorn. "'Ark at 'im" he said, "Six weeks a sailor and never a Christmas at 'ome".

I suspect that my frequent presence in the forums (fora?) laying down the law to one and all sometimes generates the same response in the minds of the real experts. I plead enthusiasm, a quality that appears to be universal here.
Thank you all.

Thank you Dorbel for those beautiful words.

You are right: We are all enthusiasts and the work we are doing is fascinating even when a ship is moored for a long period at the same place, there is always something going on.
