Annapolis,   Md.,   1987. SMOKING  LAMP SEA  DOGS  WHO  SAILED  THE  WOODEN  SHIPS  ENDURED  HARDSHIPS  THAT  SAILORS TODAY NEVER SUFFER. CRAMPED QUARTERS, POOR UNPALATABLE FOOD, BAD LIGHTING, AND BOREDOM WERE HARD FACTS OF SEA LIFE. BUT PERHAPS A MORE FRUSTRATING PROBLEM WAS GETTING FIRE TO KINDLE A CIGAR OR PIPE TOBACCO  AFTER  A  HARD  DAY’S  WORK. MATCHES WERE SCARCE AND UNRELIABLE, YET SMOKING CONTRIBUTED POSITIVELY TO THE MORALE OF THE CREW;    SO OIL LAMPS WERE HUNG IN THE FO’C’SLE  AND  USED  AS  MATCHES. SMOKING  WAS  RESTRICTED  TO  CERTAIN  TIMES OF THE DAY BY THE BOS’UN’S. WHEN  IT  WAS  ALLOWED,  THE  “SMOKING  LAMPS” WERE “LIGHTED”  AND  THE  MEN  RELAXED  WITH  THEIR  TOBACCO. FIRE WAS, AND  STILL  IS,    THE GREAT ENEMY OF SHIPS AT SEA. THE SMOKING LAMP WAS CENTRALLY LOCATED FOR THE CONVENIENCE OF ALL AND WAS THE  ONLY  AUTHORIZED  LIGHT  ABOARD. IT WAS A PRACTICAL WAY OF KEEPING OPEN FLAMES AWAY FROM THE MAGAZINES AND OTHER STORAGE AREAS. IN TODAY’S NAVY THE SMOKING LAMPS HAVE DISAPPRED, BUT THE WORDS “SMOKING LAMP IS LIGHTED IN ALL AUTHORIZED SPACES” REMAINS -- A CARRY- OVER FROM OUR PAST. 19-22
