Containing Multitudes Since 2004
His kind of humor,esprit and talent and humanity is so amazing,very like him.
Reminds me of a Brit war flick (the name escapes me; was it Morning Departure?) where two sailors are vying for a chance to woo the same woman. The first guy fools the second guy into thinking her name is "Arabella" when it isn't, so during the cruise the second guy painfully has his "I love my Nelly" tattoo transformed into "I love my Arabella." At one point they break to go to action stations, at which time the transformation is only half finished, and the tattoo reads "I love my Belly." Heh!
The film was the excellent "We Dive At Dawn"  starring John Mills in the lead role, concerning the exploits of the submarine "Sea Tiger" [P61]. The sailor with the tattoo was the Coxswain, Chief Petty Officer 'Dickie' Dabbs, played by Reginald Purdell.http://www.archive.org/movies/thumbnails.php?identifier=We_Dive_at_Dawn_1943
