Hello,

I am new to this forum. My background is military volunteer/voluntary bands. I started playing about twelve years ago, self taught with a fingering chart, a "Tune a Day" book and a borrowed tenor. I have played with four or five volunteer bands, Naval and RAF and absolutely love it. Hard work at times but a great way of making music, friends and progress as a sax player. My current top love is baritone, but I am happy to fill any seat as required.

Thank you. I will put the non-Brits out of their misery and confusion. "Pusser" is slang for the Royal Navy.

I'm a Brit and it's the first I've heard of it.

Welcome. I've learned something from you already!

Hi Pusser, welcome aboard from this ex-Portsmouth Dockyard electrical fitter.
Those were the days in the '50s/'60s when we had a navy and 12,000 men employed in the yard!!!

What ever happened?:(
It was the beginning of the end for G.B. Engineering Ltd. :crying:
I served a 5 year apprenticeship,the first 10 months pushing a file, from 07.00 to 17.00hrs. with an hour for lunch. At the end of that time I could work comfortably to 0.001", with the right attitude to the job - "near enough isn't good enough".
I'm afraid that sort of training is long gone.

Grumpy old johnboy.

Drank some when I was on Tortola a week or so back :D Lovely it was too!
I think I may have had too much already... I read that as " drank some when I was on a Tortilla" - not quite sure what image appeared in my head there :))) :)))
