Hear the Sailors Cry

hark, now hear the sailors cry, 
smell the sea, and feel the sky 
let your soul & spirit fly, into the mystic. . .

  1. There was once a ‘before and after’ photograph of a RN ship that had spent a 6 month deployment around the Caribbean, which I am desperately trying to find.

    It shows the ships crew lining the deck in full splendour on departure, and upon return the photograph showed several matelots minus good conduct badges, (he-he, jolly jack tar bless em)!

    Pussers rum is responsible for many things…

    God knows how?

  2. And we remember those times well…deployments …Pearl Harbor and submarine deployments ….wow….underwater for three months….almost as tedious as the six month variety on the surface…and just as much fun…..k

  3. EB: Pussers rum? I thought that was for wusses. I did (however) have to look up the word matelot. Do link the pic if you ever find it.
    Kris: I never wanted to do subs. I would if ordered, but I won’t volunteer.
