Various Woodcocks known as Timber Dick, but my favourite of all time was the nickname given to the Somerset cricketer Paul Romaines, human.
We had a chief on the Onondaga, we nicknamed the TAS (short of course for the Tasmanian Devil, he looked like one honest), but the funny part was the clock above the desk in the engine room would have the TAS and then an arrow aft or fwd, and this way we knew where the chief was at all times (used to hide out in the glandspace, his little

One day he's motoring through the engine room and he stops at the desk and asks the PO on watch what did that TAS stand for, well (jimmy) being real fast on his feet's a Time Analysis System chief, the arrow fwd tells us the donks are running fast and aft is slow, all this with a straight face... :thumright:

I believe he knew what it was, just wanted someone to say it to him, but with his character just like a Tasmanian Devil who's going to ask. :whew:
