Mr Monkey aboard HMS Warrior, 30th August

"They were very keen on their grog, you know"

Mr Monkey looking into the Issue Room Mr Monkey looking around the Rum Room

Mr Monkey trotted along the lower deck. He had a look at the issue room, to see where the crew were issued with their daily food. Then he went through to the rum room. At 12.30 every day half a pint of grog (2 parts water to 1 part rum) was issued to the mess cook representing each group of 18 sailors, and taken back to be shared on the main deck.
