Alright John, Maybe but we’ve got the prettiest uniform, it’s a babe magnet & I’ll have you know the ’Ladybird book of fings wot fly’ has some dead long words in it.
Scouse, you are a babe magnet, uniform or no uniform. The RAF uniform was designed by Hardy Amies, who also designed the Wrens’ uniform. He wanted airmen to wear black stockings, but Hugh Trenchard said that allowing them to wear a collar and tie was enough without over-icing the cookie. You should take your ’Ladybird book of fings wot fly’ on the Antiques Roadshow, it’s probably worth a bomb. I showed them my ’Ladybird book of fings wot float in Portsmouth Harbour’ and they said it was disgusting and confiscated it.
