Default Nelson's Blood

The Story of Naval Rum by Captain James Pack Obe RN

First printed in the UK in 1982, reprinted Oct 83. Printed again 1995 for the US market.

This 196 page volume traces the origin of the beloved navy tot from the Caribbean to the last ship to call Up Spirits on July 31, 1970.

Anyone who has an interest in the history of the tot, grog, and one of the longest lived traditions in our history will find Nelson's Blood an entertaining read.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
