Matthew Walker Knot
The Matthew Walker, the first knot to bear a man’s name, is used to keep the end of a rope from fraying. It is tied by unraveling the strands of a piece of rope, knotting the strands together, then laying up the strands together again. It may also be used for tying several separate cords, in order to keep them together in a bundle.
There are a number of different legends about the identity of Matthew Walker. One plausible account has it that he was a ship’s rigger in the Royal Navy working on Tyneside in the mid-18th century.
Another more dramatic theory is that Matthew Walker was a boatswain ( or just a sailor) in the Royal Navy who found himself sentenced to death by a judge who had once been a sailor himself. For some reason, the judge offered Walker a full pardon if he could show him a knot that he could neither tie nor untie. Walker called for 10 fathoms of line and retired to his cell, unlaid the rope halfway, put in a special knot, and then laid up the rope again to the end. The judge was unable to undo the rope and Matthew Walker happily secured his freedom.
Sailors Yarn – Lucky Roosters
In the battle of Les Saintes, which Admiral George Rodney fought against the French in 1782, it is said that a rooster crowed at every broadside, which the men interpreted as a good omen. At the Battle of Santa Domingo in 1806, a rooster hopped out of its bullet-damaged cage during the battle, again a good omen. And indeed, both times the victory was on the British side. Whether this can be attributed to the roosters is a moot point, but a good story to impress one’s comrades.
