Tot Song/Sods Opera

Black Tot Day – July 31st, 1970, when the last “tot was drawn in the fleet around the globe; a rather touchy subject with the old and bold!” Black Tot Day was officially the last day that Pusser’s Rum was issued on board ships in the Royal Navy.

    I was serving on Whaley on the day of the Black Tot, I was a victualling Jack Dusty at the time and I believe that as I served the last tot at mis-musters that sad day I can say without any uncertainty that I served the last bubbly on the island. Oddly, it’s really only just occurred to me that I am a subject of historic value.
