Black Tot Day (a saaaaaaaaaad day in history)

Tomorrow marks the 43 anniversary of one of the darkest days in British naval history:

BLACK TOT DAY
July, 31 1970-- The last day a rum ration was issued in the Royal British Navy.


Sort of the opposite of "Rum Day."

Out of respect, have a tot in memory of a grand tradition.  Want to go all out? Grab some of a limited supply of actual Royal Navy Rum Stock bottled and sold at Black Tot.
