Thanks for that, Henry.

Suckling then had no knowledge of the navy. 'maritime work chants' of any description would not have been tolerated. They were certainly not needed with more than sufficient manpower to complete every task in silence, such was the order. The only accompaniment allowed was, where available, a musician to accompany the rhythm of the capstan work. even when chanties came in in the 1840s they were not allowed or needed on RN vessels.
