Navy Records in the UK on their Twitter feed last Friday, this amazing picture shows graffiti left behind by sailors in port. The approximate dating of this wall's scrawls and scribbles is between 1740 and 1780.
Leaving a little bit of themselves behind, a few anonymous seamen have also left us a remarkable and invaluable treasure. And that is our good fortune indeed.
