Wet Feet

Although our Ribs are off service for winter maintenance , we cannot
keep clear of water.
As a Recognised Police SAR Unit , In the New Forest we have been on patrol rescuing motorists from floods. Today Sunday 8th December
Log reads. Found Groom and Best Man stranded by flood water
under a railway bridge . Sign at each end stated road closed Floods
but perhaps they could not read. Wonder what the Bride thought
waiting at the Church ? Good job we had our dry suites

I just get this image of a short man in a captain's hat on a leather sofa being shoved into floodwater by a load of kids

Oh dear, delusions of grandeur again...

You are NOT a "Police SAR Unit", you are a SAR team tasked by the Police. There is a world of difference between your organisation and Police search teams.

Please get your terms and facts right before trying to use this forum for self-aggrandisement.

When on patrol in the rain / floods, when we are going to fords etc we carry one or two of the old Ravensprings and a Protec drysuit, this is so when we go in to attach a winch cable we dont get wet!

Indeed today was almost amusing, nice explanation from one of the gents from the car - "well the groom has F****d off, and left the car....in there....., oh and it aint working"

Groom is off to a flying start then

These people are helping others voluntarily. Please stop finding any excuse to criticise them. You are making yourself look foolish and are obviously way out of your depth posting on these threads.

Ignorance making an attempt at being amusing.

Despite your inclusion of a ludicrous "big grin" symbol (presumably because you've run out of vocabulary), you really aren't very funny.

I suggest you try and learn some respect if you know what that is.
