So what's the answer? Or was your thread title just a big fat lie, mister?

Trusty Shellback breaking slime covered Wogs in right since November of 1982.



Gives a whole new meaning to 'log book'

Yep & I don't know if UCMJ has a Statute of Limitations so I'll never admit that I (might have) abandoned my watch on 287 NOV 68. However, there were 3 sailors who elected to forgo (their option) the honor of becoming a Shellback on that date.

After a couple of weeks of cold shoulder from the other 350 or so crew though, they decided this was a bad decision. We offered them another opportunity north-bound and they accepted. That was their second mistake. By then, of course, there were only those 3 Wogs left.


<Edit to correct date difference between Polywog day (27th) and Shellback day (28th).>
