Subject: RE: Jamboree: Oat Cakes?
"Bulgine" is a reference to a steam engine but it's not clear to me if it's a reference to a steam engine aboard ship, i.e. a "donkey" engine for helping to work the sails or yards, or a steam engine on the dock helping to deliver bales of cotton or sacks of grain. Maybe it's a reference to all steam engine afloat or ashore.
