GUEST,Derrick Chanteys in Royal Navy? (96* d) RE: Chanteys in Royal Navy? 21 Aug 17


When I worked in Devonport Dockyard many years ago I often did jobs on ships which were in commission.
The crews would be carrying out routine jobs some of which would involve
pulling or pushing.
When the men were in position the rating in charge would give a command to ready them,followed by two,six heave,this was repeated as necessary to complete the task.
The effort was co-ordinated without the need for a song.
