39 years since the end of the tot!

A Cold wet and miserable day.Alongside in Guzz, Old Ark, Dinner time session in the Avondale following Tot time. Watchkeeping, home, head down woke up 10 minutes to Eight. Shit adrift.....Dressed in No2's run 3miles to dockyard, arrive panting up the gangway to find on watch QM suprised to see me. Why.... It was by then 2130 at night. I was due on for the Forenoon. :D
Every mid day "Up Spirits" came the pipe. And it did! Lift spirits, we all looked forward to it and enjoyed it. I remember reports, true or not I couldn't possibly say, of certain of HM Ships crossing and re-crossing the International Date Line just to have a re-scrub so's to speak! Happy days!
