About

The regular rations of alcohol in the Royal Navy, especially rum, often led to drunkeness among sailors. Drink was a major cause of crime and indiscipline. Drunken sailors were usually put in irons until sober. Later, they would usually receive a flogging, generally of about one or two dozen lashes, unless guilty of more serious crimes, when a court martial would follow.
George Cruikshank after Lieutenant John Sheringham
