After leaping into the Clyde, off the Atlantic Causeway, to assist Chief Engineer Ken McKenzie, who was strapped in a cane and canvas stretcher and, by sheer incompetence, had been dropped into the water I was given an award by The Liverpool Shipwreck and Humane Society.
My local newspaper (The Yorkshire Evening Press, now defunct) got told about this and asked me to go in to see them for an interview, -------and please wear your uniform so's we can take some pictures-------.
I thought it would be a good idea to have a couple of tinctures, in York, before going to see them! The couple inevitably turned into severalteen and I turned-up at The Evening Press offices decidedly the worse-for-wear.
After the interview the photog. asked me to pose for him so I clapped my cap on the back of my loaf and gave, what I thought, was an enigmatic picture of a Merchant Navy Officer gazing at a far-distant horizon! What it actually looked like, of course, was a pissed bloke in uniform!!!
Fortunately, because newspaper photographs used thousands of dots when they were printed, the printed version didn't look anywhere as horrendous as this!!!! Salaams Phil Roe

And I think you look like an enigmatic sailor worse for wear!

JoK
For some reason the new gallery software doesn't like things such as & " etc., in the description field and displays the code. The answer is to avoid these characters at the moment.

Actually Jo (see I remembered your name so the tinctures acn't [whoops! I lie!!] have done TOO much harm!!) I was going to ask one of the moderators exactly that same question as it is extremely irritating isn't it? It makes reading an explanation a bit of a chore as you're trying to decipher whatever the idiotic words stands for. In my case they are inverted comma's. Salaams Phil Ha! beaten too it by the excellent Marconi Sahib!!!

I've found that an apostrophe works in place of " but the only answer to & is and.

Nice Bombay badge Phil.

Ah but look at it now peeps! I've done a rehash on the description, removed the inverted comma's and now we no longer have those stupid ampersands and "quot's" Technophobe? Moi? As if!!!! Thankyou, Captain Ken, for your kind words. Salaams, Phil (The Magnificent, he said unselfconsciously)

Actually, Marconi Sahib, sir, the ampersand seems to appear automatically in front of that "quot" whenever you use inverted comma's.
My actual sentence was, "----and please wear your uniform so's we can take some pictures--------". The software then converted the " to ampersand quot. I've actually HAD to write "ampersand" in words as, when I used the symbol, the software chucked its teddy out of the pram!!! Salaams, Phil

Something to do with HTML source code and reserved characters probably, Sir.
It's all them amperes and volts being consumed by all these 'ere PCs as does it.
Technophobe? Nothing to be ashamed of these days!

steviej! I shall treat THAT remark with the contempt it surely deserves (I think!) However curiosity overcoming my undoubted indignation that someone should feel ANY photo of myself (drunk, sober, posing in womens clothing, whatever) should need tweeking I HAVE to ask the question! In what way does a photo of one of humanity's finest examples need (in your own words!)---------a rehash?

Phil. I think your description of a photo of one of humanity's finest examples is pushing the boat a little. Don't be offended but I rather thought you could have smartened yourself up a little. You could a least put your cap straight and do something with eyes. The photographer did not enhance the photo with the shadow. No wonder the Yorkshire Evening Press went bust with poor quality photo's. the C/Eng's Daughter was near the mark when she commented Hello Sailor, nice to you dressed decently for a change!!! However photoshop could always put you on different shoulders.

When was the Atlantic Causeway incident? I vividly remember the coverage which your rescue got in the Greenock Telegraph. Well done!

p.s. If you are looking for a pair of shoulders to 'photoshop' your fizog on to, have a peek at CED's latest profile picture!
