New TV programme?
« on: September 06, 2012, 03:40:16 pm »
I've had an idea ...  What about the OW cooking challenge?  Contestants are given a list of 'provisions received' from one of our ships and have to come up with something nutritious and delicious - or failing that, at least edible.
To start off - Britomart has just received 44 lbs of meat, 2 sheep, 100 lbs of onions, 100lbs of pumpkins (I think - take a look at the page below), and 78 lbs bread.  Any suitable recipes?

You have a place on the first programme!  And we can add a craft element to the cookery - that should ensure excellent ratings ....  :D

I can contribute some raw whale blubber from the Corwin. This is a Chukchi delicacy and certain to please viewing audiences from the north. Perhaps this could be featured in the second program?

Well, Tegwen did use the sheep, but it was for woolly jumpers rather than stew - a win/win situation (especially from the sheeps' perspective!)

And Joan - I don't think I'd ever seen Rigged Church before (and so I transcribed it for the edited log) - I'm wondering whether they were rigging awnings etc so they didn't get sunstroke while worshipping?

Royal Navy in World War 2 --- NAVAL LIFE and CUSTOMS, Part 2 of 2

Quote
Church is Rigged on the Quarter-deck

Captain's Rounds are over at last, however, then Church on the quarterdeck. First the Roman Catholic and United Board Church Parties land to attend their own places of religion on shore, and only Church of England men remain aboard. The Duty watch "rigs" Church by ranging rows and rows of mess stools across the quarter-deck for the hands, and a couple of rows of chairs. The carved lectern - the ship's carpenter made that in his spare time - comes up from the Chapel, and a small table is draped with the White Ensign. The ship's bell begins to toll as soon as Church is rigged and, while the string section of the ship's band plays a voluntary, the officers and men troop in singly and in groups. Church aboard a warship is "voluntary" - but all are expected to attend! The Service is short and simple - a few hymns, a few well-known prayers, a psalm, maybe, with the band accompanying; the Captain reads a lesson, the Chaplain delivers a very short sermon, another hymn, another prayer, the National Anthem - and all is over. The Chaplain, hands deep in the sleeves of his surplice, passes alone down the centre of the standing ship's company; a pause and the Captain follows him, turning to say "Pipe Down, Commander" to the "bloke" as he passes. The Commander nods and the officers troop out, then the Chiefs and Petty Officers. "Pipe Down," orders the Commander. "Duty Part Unrig Church" - and the routine of the day is over.
