Stunning flower displays and Black Tot Day in the Tea Room

On 31 July, we marked Black Tot Day aboard Britannia with tastings in our Gift Shop and a delicious cocktail in our Royal Deck Tea Room.

Black Tot Day on 31 July 1970 was the final day the Royal Navy issued its service men and women with their daily rum ration. Today, we use Royal Navy Pusser's Rum in the Tea Room and sell it in our Gift Shop.

Pusser's now contribute a percentage of the overall company that would have been spent on rum to help support serving and ex-Navy personnel, providing everything from bedding to rehabilitation equipment. This week's 'Snaps' also capture the beautiful flower arrangements throughout Britannia.
