Bat Goddess What are 'Quarterdeck Manners'? (20) RE: What are 'Quarterdeck Manners'? 10 Oct 19


Right, EBarnacle.

I'd already (in a previous tale about how Doctor Dogbody lost his larboard leg, looked up banyan day when no meat was served from the British naval ship's galley. So called from the Banyans in the East Indies where the inhabitants ate nothing that had life.

It also referred to a picnic for the ship's crew, but I think that was later.

All of the above makes sense and is what I inferred, but I couldn't find an explanation of the term "quarter-deck manners" anywhere.

Thanks, all!

Linn
