Reminds me of when the Navy first got the Wessex to replace Whirlwinds....first practice landing from Albion on to Lulworth Cove area, full Commando plus us CDO Gunners; my command post Landrover took a dive into the sea when the LH seat pilot said "What's the time" and the RH seat pilot replied "1005" but pressed the hook release instead of the PTT, because they were the opposite way round from the Whirlwind's. That was his story, anyway.
