Was on the Barlby of Ropners.I remember one evening meal the Chief Steward gave the mess so called pork chops and the saloon were dining on steaks.The pork chops consisted of bone and fat with an inkling of meat.They were not edible.Of we went enmass to the stewards cabin were a row broke out.Being not far from the saloon the old man heard the commotion came out and see what was happening.Chief Steward well and truly bollocked we went back down to the mess were the chief cook was waiting with those words we wanted to hear in the first place.How would you like your steaks boys.Victory for the mess
