All hands watch Timewatch tonight, 2000 BBC2 for detail on Elizabethan guns and gunnery. Includes, I gather, a firing. Close up 1959 and report 'Controller closed up, cleared away, Channel set, Subtitles on for the hard of hearing'. No.2 provide slippers and kye (one should be so lucky ..) and thereafter keep silence. Let's hope they get the drill right - 'Prick the Cartridge!' 'Cartridge pricked!' etc.
