Homosexuality in Nelsons Navy

Discussion in 'Diamond Lil's' started by seafarer1939, Jun 29, 2010.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone interested in history as I am can pick up quite a bit from the Times newspaper of the day,for instance.
    22 October 1807 one of the finest looking sailors of the day,Lt William Berry was hanged for getting a cabin boy to play with his genitals!
    He was fine looking,over 6! in height and a model Officer due to be married on the ships return.
    Cabin boy was exonerated for being 14 years of age[he really was 16 and should have been hanged] but he complained to others about the practice before.
    In another issue a seaman was awarded 300 lashes and a years imprisonment for shagging a female pig!
    Worth a read is the Times from the past.

    Females are fine - but you can't beat the real thing... :wink:
  3. Jack is still doing that. In fact some of them even married them!!
  4. Are you in Guzz? I was a few days ago and the sight of the female population 'enjoying' themselves on a Saturday night still has me in shivers 8O

    Mod Edit:

    With respect to SF1939, but I have moved this to "Lil's" in anticipation of the inevitable colourful comments that are bound to be posted...
    :shock: :wink:

  6. RR is serving time as we speak for the very same :D :D (shaggin a pig not marrying one :lol: )
  7. Should that not be rodgers the cabin boy.Oh boy 300 lashes mmmmmmmmmmm thats a good night for some. :wink: :D
  8. Yeah but in mitigation, I was pissed and thought it was a sheep. 8O
  9. Just a couple of questions,
    Did Lt Berry push back then?
    Was the cabin boy called "Roger"
  10. Did the pig squeal on him then?

  11. Oh cnut,keep me out of this one.. Its not a sin if it ain't in!!!: :lol:

  12. That's put pay to my plans then!
  13. In case any new recruits feel the need to stroke an Officers Genitals,Lt Berry had a tough hanging.
    Despite a 32lb cannon ball tied to his feet,when the sailors ran and hoisted him the noose knot caught under his chin and he choked for 15 mins.
    He may have rogered the cabin boy as he never expected to be caught in his own cabin but! a young female cabin girl looked through the keyhole.
    That hanged him.
    His respected family were distraught at the shame,that should stop some new recruits trying to get advancement.
    BTW the pig was thrown overboard the next day!who would want to eat bacon after Jack had pumped it up!
  14. Ah well that was one pig hanged opps ozzifer and the bacon and pork chops wasted good enough to fcuk good enough to eat. :wink: :D

  15. I should think so too, you hussey. We have enough trouble with hossifers without you getting the pr1cks excited :wink:

  16. The cabin boy and maybe the cabin girl?

    And on that subject, where the friggin hell did she pop up from?
    This tale is getting like a plot like a "B" rated porno, so far we have gay play, smally girls and bestiality, whipping and snuff action.
    Fuck sake bring in the sticky buns, a couple of nuns and two cowboys riding each other's range and we practically have a full house.

    The irony is not lost on me.

    In Nelsons day, you would get punished.

    Today, you get promoted.

    Cruel irony is a fickle mistress.
  18. The girl was one of those who popped up frequently,signed on as a boy,found out later to be a girl and allowed to stay,wonder why?
    Her testimony had him hanged and hers alone.
    Considering he was over 6' broad and very good looking may be she was jealous,why would she look thru an officers cabin door keyhole?
    Sorry about the porno but just picked it up from the Times newspaper of the day.
    It's the old saying "If you don't know where we've been, we can't know where we are going!" that's why I like Naval history.
  19. RNAS Ford 1957. A National Service PO was caught in the act with a sow, by the OOD and entourage (nothing odd about Carruthers). He earned as holiday in DQs
  20. You mean I could have ended up in DQ's for some of the pigs I woke up next to in Swilly 8O (wondered why it was originally called that, makes sense when you think about it)

    It's gone posh now though, it's called North Prospect!!!!!!
