OK. I had me tot of the blessed Woods 100% and raised a toast to the Immortal memory, then I decided that since I'm in charge I'd grant meself splicers, then, having got the taste, I poured another glass, so now I'm ready to take on anybody, including multi coloured pikeys from the depths of the West Midlands who pick 'emselves a name and then keep referring to me as something of a rum fancier.

'ang on, just gonna top me glass up - - - - - - - - - - -

Had an uncle called Horatio Nelson ......., at the outbreak of WW2 he went to join the bootnecks, story goes that when he told the recruiting bods his name, they said, "this war shouldnt last long with you on our side", evidently the name was popular for many years after his death.

Gentlemen, as a retired member of the Senior Service, prior to my commission I was a CPO for 8 years and I had never even heard of Pickle Nights until after I had been promoted to the wardroom. I understand that the tradition was born in 1974 in HMS NELSON Barracks. I am doing a little research into the programme for a Pickle Night Dinner on behalf of another shipmate and I was wondering if any of you could advise please.
Many thanks.
