    Don't want to knock the gilt off your gingerbread My Lord, but in your exalted position within the Board of Admiralty, that is not considered stealing, but just on of the perks of the job. Just don't let the Clerk of the Acts find out. We would not want anybody being accused of peculation now would we!

    That‘s the problem with some members of the admirality who started their career with Letter of Marques...

    Won‘t call this official „stealing“, too.

    Maybe a futher, unlucky French broadside will prevent those picant details from our next meeting Agenda, Rob.

    I think that your next stocktaking will show that there is no deficiency in the stock of Rum my dear Comte, since I had a quick word with the Superintendent of Dockyards.

    Charge it to "Morale & Wellness"--it helps keep the men's morale up when they see those higher up the ladder risking Official Displeasure to take care of them, and thus keeps them well motivated. :)

    Not only that but the fact that you have just completed 5 AAR's in our 2015 Campaign makes you only the sixth man to sport the medal for this feat.
    Double congratulations!

    In addition you are the only person on either forum to whom I have given four awards in a month, let alone in two days.

    I make that worth a quadrouple G&t to me thanks.

    It does look as if it's drinks all round only another 7 games to go to complete 2015, if only I had been here 5 years ago

    Cheers
