Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Bo'sun (also spelled bo's'n, bos'n, or bosun) is the Phonetic Spelling of the rank Boatswain.
  • The Boatswain is a petty officer on a merchant ship who controls the work of the other seamen onboard. They are the 3rd or 4th Mate to the Captain onboard, and manage the Deck-Crew.
  • The rank of boatswain is the oldest rank in the Royal Navy, and its origins can be traced back to the year 1040.
  • It is derived from late Old English batswegen, from bat (boat) concatenated with Old Norse sveinn (swain), meaning a young man, apprentice, a follower, retainer or servant.
