moonstick or ADM330In lveston five sailors acted out a mock
'Mutiny on the Bounty', two of them taking
the parts of Captain Bligh and Fletcher
Christian. They sang Irish rebel songs
(which songs were not specified) in the
wardroom flat late at night. There was
evidence about unsatisfactory bacon sandwiches
and, metaphorically, 'pounding the
Jimmy's ear', to say nothing of actually
blacking the Coxslwain's eye. In one day
the five accused drank 88 pints of beer,
34 whiskies, 20 rums, 13 cans of beer and
one vodka (John Gordon of the Sunday
Expr-c.rs, evidently atwed ,by these statistics,
recommended 'distinguished swilling medals
all round'). Meanwhi'le, Iveston's Captain
was entertaining a tramp to whisky and
conversation in the wardroom.
