It was also the lower deck wot had fancy eccents too you know.
Wot I meant was, was 'ow the officer class 'ad them clipped accents like, only more than wot you get now.
Yes, strange that, Her Majesty's Warships seemed full of sailors with British accents in those days!
Tom, thanks, so good to be reminded or this. I had the book as a kid (Brown on Resolution by CS Forester), stirring stuff!
This was the '50's remake - the 30's original starred John Mills and HMS Curacoa, Neptune and Broke. All three lost in the war! That version's on YouTube as well. Same plot, even more British accents!
Co-starring HMS Manxman, Cleopatra and Glasgow.
