Opération Pipe : As it happens, in French, ‘une pipe’ can mean several things. It can be that wooden smoking instrument, it can also be slang for a cigarette (that’s outdated now), or it can be slang for, well, oral sex. You can imagine how popular an « Opération Pipe » could be on a warship (even in a navy where, to quote Churchill, it was not all ‘rum, corporal punishment and sodomy’).
French for "skin flute" I suppose...
If a British gentlemen started seeing omens every time it rained he'd never have time to get anything done.
I'm imagining something akin to the opening of Apocalypse Now: "Yorkshire... shit, I'm still in Yorkshire..."
