One of two I brought home, this went to my Mum and which I reclaimed when she died, the other went to an Aunt who has also passed away, don't know if it is still in the family. Probably non-PC now but they looked good at the time.
Had a week in Rio doing engine repairs after completion of discharge, which was a b****-up mixed G.O. grades when we were not supposed to, misunderstanding of unclear instructions from H.O.. Great place for run ashore as the OM cancelled Deck side watches even though we were at anchor. Just had to check we were not dragging the hook every now and then.

Is it true that when someone drops a butterfly tray in Brazil, an afternoon tea forms in the Dorchester?

Butterfly Trays are a bit of a no no these days, but there are far worse Brazillian souvenirs you could pick up.
