When I was on the Ark Royal [R09] I had to clean the ship’s bell. I spent ages cleaning and polishing it and was proud of the end result.
However, my Chief was livid and said it was rubbish – or words to that effect. He said he wanted it so shiny that he could see his face in it.
I spent all day polishing that bloody bell and I still couldn’t see his face in it: I could only see my face in it.
