Re: Royal Navy + Sidmouth
Two of the ships in which I served in the Royal Navy were destroyers and each had complements of 200 men plus 7 or 8 officers and in both cases our Captains knew us all individually and by name and what our jobs were. Sign of a good Captain. We all got to know each other, too. Not quite the same in the case of larger ships such as aircraft carriers.
