Thread Name: Cyril Tawney celebration @ C# House-14 April 2007
Subject: RE: Cyril Tawney celebration @ C# House
Well, speaking as a ex-tiffy myself, 76-86, I kick myself that I didn't get to see more of Cyril. Shep was a regular at the PO's Mess at HMS Daedalus, amongst other shore stations.
I'm getting my ticket tomorrow, crashing at a mate's in London.
I regularly sing Grey Funnel Line and Suit of Grey, The former I identify with my 82 Falklands summer holiday, and the latter with the ex! (as she was too tall for five-foot flirt!)I'm too fat for 'Lean and unwashed Tiffy', but chicken on a raft brings back memories of HMS Fisgard ... the way the fried bread exploded when you tried to cut it... health&safety hazard now!
