Captain Ian Wills..

A ship was sailing in a dangerous part of the sea. The captain saw a pirate ship approaching his ship.

The captain shouted to his crew, “Gentlemen, bring me my red shirt!”

The crew brought him his red shirt, he put it on, and led his men into battle. They lost one man, but all in all it was a great victory. Everyone wonders what the red shirt is, but they just shrug their shoulders.

A few days later, the captain sees two pirate ships in the distance.

He calls out again, “Men, bring me my red shirt!”

The crew does so and they fight the pirates. This time they lose a few more men, but at least most of them are unharmed.

This time, however, curiosity gets the better of them and they ask the captain why he asked for his red shirt during the battles.

To which he replies: “Crew, I know you all rely on me for support and morale, I knew I was likely to be wounded and I didn’t want you to see me bleeding and fear that all was lost, so I wore a red shirt so that my wounds would blend into my shirt”.

A few weeks later, the ship is sailing on another sea, and suddenly 10 fearsome pirate ships appear in the distance.

The captain sees them and shouts, “Gentlemen, bring me my brown pants!”
