    As an addendum to my comment (I couldn't edit it, sorry) "scuttlebutt" is still used in the US Navy and it means "rumor(s)". Also, coxswain is pronounced "COCK- sun".

    A question was asked about alcohol being served on Navy ships: the US Navy doesn't unless you are out at sea for more than 45 days and then it's only like 1 or 2 cans of beer. The RN (and most other countries' navies) are more liberal with alcohol on their ships.
