  • A right plonker

    Tee Emm was a wartime RAF magazine intended to introduce RAF aircrew to new practices and procedures whilst at the same time getting rid of bad habits and unsafe practices. It very much relied on humour to do this and one feature was to regularly nominate actual boobs for an award. For your delectation I reproduce one of these entries

    THE MOST HIGHLY DEROGATORY ORDER OF THE IRREMOVABLE FINGER (Patron : Pilot Officer Prune) has this month been awarded to F/Sgt. --- for Failing to put his Hand Up when Wanting to Leave the Aircraft. F/Sgt....was passenger in the rear of an Oxford which was on a daylight exercise. On completion of a period of instrument flying, at about 3,000 feet, the pilot and instructor looked round and found that they no longer had a passenger.
    It turned out later that F/Sgt. , wishing to relieve himself, had opened the door of the aircraft, but instead of carrying on with the exercise had fallen out. He eventually returned to camp by bus with his open parachute tucked underneath his arm.
