The navy personnel who serviced the Polaris submarine support ship in the Clyde during the cold war were mostly very well behaved as they were in deep shit if the got in to trouble. I was drinking in a country pub late one night when a young American guy appeared looking for help.He and a few of his buddies had taken a shore patrol vehicle and a couple of local girls and went for a jaunt. They had stuck the van in a ditch on the narrow country road. We all piled out and managed to manhandle the van on to the road. The Navy guys were profuse in their thanks as we probably saved them from an early return home.
I would have thought this would have been a Marine stunt, but thinking on it, I think the Marine would not have thought of that substitute & would have instead tried to fart in the interlock system. Also, for a First Class, he should have been able to hold his liquor better. Must have been Stateside too long.
