"Events of October 1962 indicated, as they had all through history, that control of the sea means security. Control of the seas can mean peace. Control of the seas can mean victory. The United States must control the seas if it is to protect your security...."

John F. Kennedy

"We are outnumbered; there is only one thing to do.  We must attack!"

Admiral Andrew Cunningham



Naval Tidbits

Can't Hold a Candle  - In Medieval and Colonial times, the job of the Apprentice was to hold a candle over the Master's hands while he worked, if it was dark or late in the evening.  The Apprentice was to observe closely to move the candle as required and to watch and learn how the master worked.  This term soon came to be applied to an apprentice so lazy or incompetent that he couldn't even be trusted with this simple task..

Fathom - The unit of measurement in most maritime countries for the depth of the sea or the lengths of ropes or cables.  The word comes from the old English Word 'faedm', which means 'to embrace'.  It is a measurement based on a man's out-stretched arms, and is roughly six feet.  As a measurement of distance, a 'cable' is 100 fathoms.  The saying, "I can fathom that," is now obsolete, but once referred to a person being able to understand the depth of something, or to measure it.
