Mick, have just read an article in a newspaper about the deceased Slim Dusty.
I don't know how long he has been dead for.
Will try and find out more.
So now you only have Cliff left.

then were the days - the sick and wounded that couldn't be cured onboard where rowed ashore from their ships anchored in the sound (didn't like to go alongside because it was easier for the crew to do a runner and er......retire? from Naval life it not being of the best for shore leave once you had got a ship! Three to five years permanently onboard was the normal thing in Nelson's Navy, then as ye was trotting up the quay with your ditty bag in hand after five years away for a spot of leave some ruffian would sneak up behind ye and bop on the heid with a big stick and when you came too you'd be shipping out back to the Med for another 5 years!

Anyway as I was saying if you had something nasty the local sawbones onboard couldn't fix you'd be shipped off by boat to Stonehouse RNH! The boat went up into the smelly creek as it was then (well half of Plymouths sewage went down it on the tide) and landed at the hospital - the chances of you coming out of there were very slim indeed so as Frenchie says the term "up shit creek" meant you were as good as dead! something to look forward too there then - P7R was not as much fun back then thats fer sure.

Actually most of the med who died in most of the Big Naval battles of the time died of their wounds after the battle - seems the aftercare deep down in the unventilated lower deck of a ship of the line with a few untrained "lob Lolly Boys" to assist and maybe the odd seamans "wife" who'd tagged along for the the ride who would at least give some semblance of help! these "wifes" also became assistants in the term "Son of a Gun" where when they became pregnant gave birth on the gundeck between the guns looked after by the same Lob Lolly Boys or another wife if she was lucky - the child then had its parent details put down in the ships log as a "son of a gun" as it would be impossible to prove who the father was - no doubt as he'd just joined a cutters crew and nipped very smartish like over to another ship and joined her with a sly nod to the first lieutenant who smiled happily because he'd just got another prime seaman in his crew! I'll leave the reference to "nipped" or "nipper" to another time or perhaps that old sailor Mick might like to enlighten us on that one!
