Complaining about food is a Navy tradition. There’s even a folk song - Chicken on a Raft - about the miserable poached eggs on toast served up on the Grey Funnel Line.
More recently, crews at Gosport’s HMS Sultan and other shore bases have been Instagramming their meals with complaints about the ‘slop’ being served. Now Navy big nobs have had enough of the insubordination, and have issued ‘stop whining on social media’ orders.
Well, it’s easier than improving the food.
