Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

    Fat, an old one thats been discussed before on the forum
     
  3. First bit has been discussed as Janner stated. However, I think the last bit means (No4 dress With Foul Weather Jacket and Bottoms)
     
  4. Sounds like an entering/leaving harbour pipe:
    Hands to Harbour Stations
    Close all upper deck screen doors and hatches
    Hands out of the rig of the day clear off the upper deck
    Rig for [entering/leaving] harbour will be 4s with foul weather jackets and berets.

    Why they don't just put HTHS on Daily Dits is beyond me, as technically:
    - HTHS is repeated, therefore should read HTHSHTHS
    - No damage control state is given
