rum for the constable of the tower of London

I've found a law that states: any royal navy ships that enter the port of London must provide a barrel of rum to the constable of the tower of London.

Is this upheld?

What happened at the diamond jubilee, drunk beefeaters?

They all ate horsemeat by mistake so no beef.

Yep, old tradition always upheld by the ship I've been on if under the protection of the Tower's guns. (what I believe it was originally for?)

Thanks, I was secretly hoping it did still happen. I love all the old laws that still exist purely because there was no need to change them. Like all hackney carriages still have to carry a bale of hay.

Anyone got any more?

Stirling will probably correct me, but I believe it is still legal to shoot a Sweaty Sock with a bow and arrow inside the City of York's walls.

Possibly, Sol ran something a while ago about a pub in the smoke which RN peeps visit each year with cakes ?.

It appears that in Liverpool it is illegal for a woman to be topless except as a clerk in a tropical fish shop!

This might explain that when out of Liverpool every scouse lass can't wait to get her tits out!
