    Default Uniforms and engineers

    During my total at sea , even in Blue Funnel I never saw any engineer dressed like this in the engine room.

    it only takes thirty seconds to pose for a photo, but it would probably take half that time to leg it back up top

    I once spent a day at sea on HMS Agincourt, described as a fleet radar picket. The watch keeper down below looked like the guy in the background with boiler suit and cap on, dunno how he coped like that either.

    My 'Steaming Bonnet' was taken by my younger brother to a Fancy Dress Ball-and it never came back home....it wasn't a great loss.

    I last saw mine as my little son was legging it up our close with it on, never saw it again considering there are only 20 houses in the close some thieving barsteward must have known it was mine, wasn't too bothered at the time but that next trip had to borrow one to attend the funeral in Lagos

    Spent some time as officers steward and at no time did I ever see an engineer dressed like that going down below.
    Most were in overalls grease and all.

    In the dinning room or public areas after the young females was a bit different, they even cleaned their nails then.
