Back in the 1800's a journalist was embedded on a French battle ship. Just to doa story about thecaptain.
They were topside and the guy in the crows nest shouts " one enemy ship on the horizon." The captain tells the cabin boy ,"go get my red uniform." The journalist asked why he was doing that. The captain said in case I am wounded I don't want the crew to see me bleeding and panic. Then from the crows nest he hears " 20 enemy ships on the horizon."And the captain yells at the cabin boy," Cabin boy,bring me my brown uniform"..
