Sailors on HMS Defender have created a 'Pusser's (Navy) Human Chain' on arrival in Guam to get rid of their rubbish.

Having been at sea for more than a month, an 'out all gash' was needed to get rid of all the refuse that has been generated. 

During an 'out all gash', a small number of the crew are paid an Unpleasant Working Allowance to sort through the rubbish.

A human chain was formed with as many crew as possible, leading back into the ship to get the rubbish (known as 'gash' in the Navy) out.

HMS Argyll replied to the tweet with: "There is nothing that can't be achieved with a good old Pusser's Human Chain!"
