"Dressed the ship ... for H.M. the King's accession day"

On May 6, 1923, Bluebell "dressed the ship for H.M. the King's accession day" = and then "undressed the ship" that evening.

I love that phrasing.

Amazingly, they undressed the ship with their eyes.

On July 4 they dressed / undressed the ship in honour of American Independence Day.

Considering they were in/near Hong Kong, not American waters, I thought that was very nice of them

How many American ships were in port with them?  I can't see them doing it for the various Asian ships around there or for themselves, but it would be an easy way to butter up your allies.

Which is why we have Cinco de Mayo celebrations - any excuse to drink!  (I don't but that's beside the point)

We, too, tend to be like that about victories over the French.  ;D

Especially not tequila - it reminds me of diesel fuel, not that I've drunk much diesel.
