Issue of Salt Meat Renewed


Admiralty, 6 Feb 1833

The Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty desire that the strictest attention be paid to the 30th article of the Purser’s Instructions, page 27, in which it is directed that ‘When the issue of salt meat is renewed after fresh meat has been served, the salt meat on the first day of issue is not to be of the same species as that issued on the last day before fresh meat was issued,’ in order that the issue of salt beef and salt pork on board HM ships may be equalised, as was intended by the said instructions.

By command of their Lordships,

John Barrow.

Addressed to all Captains, Commanders, Commanding Officers, and Pursers of HM Ships and Vessels.
