But seriously folks...

I went to a Traf dinner last year and 'A willing foe & room to manouvre' was said. I believe this is fridays toast.

That's one of the thing that attracted me to the navy was the traditions and it's good to hear the seven daily toasts are still used.

The old daily toasts (nothing to do with bread under a gorilla :) )...

Monday - Our ships at sea.
Tuesday - Our men.
Wednesday - Ourselves (As no-one else is likely to concern themselves with our welfare)
Thursday - A bloody war or a sickly season
Friday - A willing foe and sea room.
Saturday - Sweethearys and wives (may they never meet)
Sunday - Absent friends.
