worked together as well - not like these big ship louts and these reserve ship layabouts! We knew that what we did affected each other and worked accordingly!

exactly - I think it was how the rum was issued that mattered - on those big buggers, depot ships and carriers they had a wee bar, issued by a butcher with an occifer watching; on the small ship it was issued by the butcher at the rum tub into mess fannies and down to the mess to be issued by one of the members of the mess, the designated rum bosun for that period. it was a daily job and you knew your mate could be doing it the next day if you were on watch! No favourites just plain decent issue to all with a wee drop of "Queens" (probably "kings" as well wie you mate) if you were lucky!
