|You can be a Vice Admiral

in consequence of the missive, Coarseness, penned by Barb JA
as well as a Rear Admiral. I always saw Mary's joke as operating on two levels:
1. She saw enough of admirals (Rears and Vices), and was tired of them
2. She saw enough of their bad behaviour - "vices" referring to their drinking, swearing and behaving very ungentlemanly.
The homosexual connection never occured to me, but I think it seems very probable that Mary intended something like that. I can't believe I didn't see it before:)
