Grizzler.When you get in from a hard nights de icing and you climb into bed with Mrs Grizzler. Have you ever wondered why she smells of fags and beer?

A good sense of humour is esential to be a Rampie

If I remember rightly that is exactly what happened on the nightshift!

Things have certainly changed since then
