In the name of international comradeship and fellowship with those who love the sea – “To Us And None Like Us”
The Algoa Bay Yacht Club (ABYC) based Due North Rum Club held their annual Black Tot ceremony at the Prince Alfred’s Guards drill hall on 2 August 2014.
As Commodore of the Algoa Bay Yacht Club I was invited to attend this annual ceremony held to commemorate the demise of the naval rum ration on 31 July 1970.
We then sat down to a “Christmas Lunch” and five tots of neat double rum each toasted at:
- 13h00: Prince Alfred’s Guards
- 13h30: Our Land
- 14h00: Sweethearts and Wives, May they never meet
- 14h00: To us and none like us
- 14h30: Absent Friends
See three of the toasts here: “Our Land”, “Sweethearts and Wives, May they never meet” and “To us and none like us!”
