I have recently been in contact with the "Pussers Rum" company , who claim that the RN always sourced its rum from The Caribbean ; I contend that suppliers in both South Africa and Australia ( Bundaberg ?) were also used if the circumstnces dictated . It seems logical to me , as my old ship , HMS Eagle , was often near both locations ,with RFAs picking up stuff from ,for example , Mombasa ( lovely big juicy tomatos !!). Any comments ??
