100 YEARS AGO
On return from Christmas leave of the first watch of the second flotilla at Portsland, complaints were made by the chief petty officers that the uniforms left aboard were ruffled and muddy.

Investigations showed that in consequence of the order that the leave on Christmas night should be for chiefs only, many seamen borrowed uniforms of absent chiefs to go ashore in.

One sailor appropriated his commander's uniform and another wore female dress. These, on leaving the dockyard met the commander himself and his wife, the latter immediately detecting the sham female.

The masqueraders were sent back to appear before the commander, but the affair was treated as a Christmas joke, and the offenders dismissed with a caution, although they were liable to ninety days.
