Thread Name: DTStudy: Captain Ward
Subject: RE: DTStudy: Captain Ward
I've seen it claimed that the original Captain Ward was the reason that people of that surname are nicknamed 'Sharkey' in the Royal Navy, although no particular reason given for it. Any ideas? I'm interested because it's also my name.
