PostSubject: Victorian Naval Rations   Victorian Naval Forces TIMETABLE EmptyWed Apr 28, 2010 8:46 pm

The men are rationed in first−class style, and, of course, fare much better in port than they would if at sea.Fresh provisions, meat, vegetables, bread, etc are brought off from the shore at half past seven o'clock everymorning. Before being received over the gangway they are inspected by the quartermaster cook, and steward.
If passed, they are checked by the paymaster, and apportioned to the cook of each mess. The men are eachallowed half a gill of rum per day, or an equivalent in money, which is recorded to their credit.The half of each watch is allowed to go ashore on alternate nights, leaving the ship at half−past 4 pm. andreturning at 7 o'clock next morning. The men not absolutely required on board are allowed Public holidays.The conduct of the men is, as a rule most exemplary, and the officers have but little trouble with them, as theyare thoroughly ammenable to the discipline of the ship, and do their work in a willing and satisfactory manner.Should however, any of them misbehave themselves, the vessel is provided with a dungeon deep' in the forecompartment, where they can be confined pending inquiry when in port, or imprisoned when at sea. The
prison has, however, been 'to let' up to the present, and may it long continue so.

"I was in the army the time of the Zulu war. Great hardship we got in it and plenty of starvation. It was the Dutch called in the English to help them against the Zulus, that were tricky rogues, and would do no work but to be driving the cattle off the fields. A pound of raw flour we would be given out at seven o'clock in the morning, and some would try to make a cake, and some would put it in a pot with water and be stirring it, and it might be eleven o'clock before you would get what you could eat, and not a bit of meat maybe for two days."
