MY FAVOURITE


DESTINATION St Barth’s


ICE COOL CAPTAIN Captain Birdseye


FACT Captain Birdseye was real. Clarence Birdseye, a biologist for the US government, set up Birdseye Seafoods. The company patented the ‘quick freezing’ process and is now considered one of the founders of the frozen food industry.


DID YOU KNOW? The actor most associated with Captain Birdseye was John Hewer, who played the character from 1967 to 1998, with a hiatus in 1971, when the fictitious Captain was killed off by Birdseye, with an ‘obituary’ in The London Times.


CELEBRITY STATUS In a 1993 poll, Captain Birdseye was named as the most recognisable captain on the planet after Captain Cook.


THE POPULAR VOTE Over 570 million fish fingers are sold every year.


NAUTICAL ETYMOLOGY... Toe the line


Youngsters in a ship, be they ship’s boys or student officers, were sometimes required to stand with their toes just touching a designated seam for a period of time as punishment for some minor infraction of discipline, such as talking or fidgeting. Over time this has lead us to the modern day expression meaning to conform to a rule or standard.

THE CORINTHIAN CANAL


This canal connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It is 6.4 km long and only 21.4 metres wide and was completed in 1893 after 12 years of problematic


construction. It separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, arguably making the peninsula an island.
