    Another award for 500 photos is presented to Jim, Nightmoss.
    Congratulations sir.

    That very much depends on what the Comptroller has in his stash my dear Captain.

    You mean, what the Comptroller has pilfered from the Admiralty's stash... *lifts canvas cover off a boat in the middle of the wardroom to reveal The Good Stuff*

    Oh well, it was gonna be too much trouble to get that out to the dock and crane aboard anyway. Might as well have it go to a good cause...

    Incidentally Anthony book reviews gain medals. It, therefore, gives me great pleasure in awarding you the Book Review Medal.

    Well done Anthony, you're away quickly with the medals. Congratulations

    Don't worry if you can't find any of the 98 I'm partial to a nice Calvados, or a Malt Whisky from the Islands preferably or indeed as a last resort Rubbing Alcohol goes down a treat on a cold winters morning.
