TTN reminds me. At one point we fell into bad company in Singapore - a Victor 1 tanker crew. Singapore, under Lee Kuan Yew​​​​​​, was now a clean country. Anyway the Victor captain engaged a taxi with directions to take us to a live show.

There followed a long tour around the town with frequent stops for directions. Eventually we arrived at a timber yard! It was an illicit blue movie show. As the taxi driver had not taken us to where we wanted the Victor captain refused to pay though we did give him some money.

What I remember clearly, when we went in, was the sight of our crew chiefs and the Victor chief, sitting on a log bench. Our next stop was to a brothel where we got free cold beers, made our excuses and left. In the process we collected an RAAF crew.

In WA during the late 70s, if it was raining on a Friday, the school flying was cancelled and the instructors would adjourn to a pub some 30km away for a Flight Safety Meeting. Such meetings involved ladies demonstrating the safe way to remove clothing, which perhaps was soaked in fuel, to avoid going up in flames. From all the demos I saw, luckily none of the girls were injured.

The Perth council decided that because the pub was open to the public, it would be possible that a child or a snowflake would see such a demonstration of safety and construe it as something else, so the so-called "Strip shows" were banned from pubs.

The pub had a close look at the wording, and got around it by having the girls come onto stage naked, and slowly put their safety equipment on. Sometimes very slowly, and some of the equipment didn't look very safe, just little bits of string, but they were Hi-Vis, so that was alright.

1st night at Bruggen asked the german taxi driver after NAAFI had shut to take us newbies to somewhere we could get some more beer and there were girls, dropped off in Elmpt, walked into a darkened room, projector flickered on showing porn films on wall and ermm, not the type of girls we were after appeared... beer quaffed and departed in fits of giggles.

They had one of those safe disrobing demonstrations in the families club at St Mawgan once. Just the once - the effluent hit the fan . Dont EVER sit at the front.

Thanks goodness cameraphones didnt exist.

This is apocryphal but it has come to me twice from different sources, many years ago.

A certain Group Captain , famous for his role in THE forecast of 1944, was saaid to be unwise enough to sit in the front in a dive in Hamburg soon after victory. The exhibish apparently made use of his hat as a prop.

As I say, apocryphal but it does lend spice to what otherwise has always seemed to me to be a strange story of "weather by committee"

At Marham we had a combined, post Corporate, gentlemens' evening in the SNCO's Mess. Our USAF exchange pilot was unaware of the rule. He pretty soon was!

Different Tanker crew c1969. A Mess ‘do’ at Tengah and I’d invited this pongo Captain from Tanglin Barracks with whom I’d been at school. Fortified with about 7 pints of Tiger we all decided to go down town in the Pongo’s car (9 in a Triumph Mayflower) to see an exhibish, in Rowell Rd as I recall.
Unfortunately approx five minutes or so into the ‘entertainment’ the Pongo dropped his trousers and got involved in the show.
The rest of the crew were somewhat wary of my choice of (former) schoolfriends after that !

I suppose a Group Captains hat is marginally more versatile that an O/Cpl armband, the latter being requisitioned, along with the wearer at the time, to enhance the performance of the lady artiste one evening at Bruggen.

Said wearer of the armband on the night was a far from unwilling volunteer however......sadly, his enthusiasm for furthering Anglo-German relationships as part of his otherwise boring duty that evening was somewhat misunderstood by those in authority the next day. It was probably "pure coincidence " his name appeared somewhat frequently for this duty for a while thereafter ......hence we thoughtfully used to ask what he was doing at the weekend in the gliding club bar mid week.

Indupitably. If you can train as a ghilly in Ireland, Champagne production in France, ski instruction in Austria you can study anything. I went to India.

Wasn't there a girl who had a pole dancing course funded? Not that that is in any way akin to appearing in porn movies.

Gentlemens Evenings were a fairly regular event in many OR's clubs up until the early 90's which were usually well attended. Along with simillar but often more riotous events in rugby clubs etc which ISTR made the News of the World on more than one occasion.

The last one I remember attending was in the Skyways club at Wyton about 1992. In the spirit of equal opportunities there was reciprocal entertainment laid on for the good ladies of Wyton the following week, which by all accounts was worse!

Then there was the topless mud wrestling night also in the Skyways.......but thats another story!

There was a similar demonstration in the Families Club at Marham in the 80's closely followed by a repeat performance by one of the "Readers Wives" who thought she could do better!
