    Default Drinks are on me!

    Thanks to John Vagabond and his rep gun it looks like I have finally made it to 1000 rep points, and the epithet of National Hero. Guess that means I have to die in the next battle then just like Lord Nelson.

    I do have one request, however, before I take up residence in Westminster Abbey. Please insert my body into the vat of Brandy, before I decease!
    The drinks in the Wardroom are on me gentlemen.

    Bligh.

    Congratulations Rob, all of your rep points have been well deserved. I will take you up on your offer for drinks in the Wardroom, however I may forgo the brandy on this occasion.

    Well done Rob, you are well deserving of the Rep, I'll have a large glass of the 98 if I may.
    Cheers

    Thanks shipmates, as Gary says it had better be the 110% proof of the 98 for John then.
