There are many types of Naval Ceremonies, some of which are illustrated below.

Each has evolved to fulfill a particular purpose and often these involved the use of Dance or Music, or over the years have become associated with particular tunes. - If readers would like to send in any general 'humorous' or 'Black Cat stories' and photos or experiences I will try to add them to the pages.

Can you help to fill the gaps Please
