GE Motto

Hiya all,

My GE Badge, and motto. I was not favoured with some of the more "glamorous" trips as a GE. Banners, Deci sheds and Africa seemed the norm for me. Hey Ho, as they say, wherever I went...

Bingofuel,

Never took it up with the skipper. I know he would have backed me up had I asked. Some things were best just let rest (as they say "up north"). Myself and the Flt Eng involved did...
