I would like to have added an image of Shep Woolley, but something's gone wrong with the computer and I can't figure it out. My link for the post is the Navy poem I prepared for the boys this ANZAC day. It’s called Bombora (ballad of a greenie). If you haven’t figured out why it’s called that by the end of reading, then ask me for an explanation.
2012. Electricians in
the Navy are called ‘greenies’ on account of the green colour signifying the
electrical engineering branch and worn on officer’s shoulder boards. Healthy rivalry exists between all the
branches, though many love to pay out on the ‘greenies’ - perhaps because of
their being more intelligent - well, not always all, as the branch will attest.
