J is for Jackspeak



J is for Jackspeak


If you were a nozzer, you mightn't understand what I'm saying.  Andrew hopes you won't swallow the anchor just yet but that you'll stop a while and partake of some whales and a trainsmash before you bimble to the bang-box.

To translate the above....check out these websites.

Oh the trails you sent me on with this one! I found the punishments listed on "Royal Navy and Marine Customs and Traditions" quite interesting. They make me quite glad that I'm not in either of our Navies! Our oldest son told us about keel-hauling. If I had to go through that and survived it, I'd be committed to the asylum for life, I think!

Thanks for your very interesting posts! Have a blessed day. :)

I'm thinking some of this would be relevant to my merchant seamen.
