Then it will be off to the wardroom (dining room) for scran (dinner). Always make sure you get duff (pudding) with plenty of custard.
You never go to bed on a ship. Only to your pit, or your scratcher if you prefer.
Don't get pit rejection. You'll never fall asleep.
Also you have to wear your steaming bats all the time in public (shoes). Especially when your walking down the passages (corridors) or into the galley (kitchen).
If it gets cold it's taters. Hot? Redders.
Bang your head on the ceiling, and you're hitting the deckhead. You'll get Hatch Rash if you bang your head when going down a hatch.

Once I went to see the MEO to talk about MBDDS but he wasn't in the SCC, he was in the AGR.

Right, must dash. I'm bursting. Got to go to the heads.
