Fact of the Day
Old war vessels had very limited space aboard. Despite this fact, many men also brought women along on their journeys far and wide. These women were either the wives of sailors or prostitutes working at sea. It is said that due to the tight quarters the crew and the ladies were forced to sleep with the canoes. The only other place to shack up was behind the cannon, and this is where most of the nautical children were conceived [source]. Hence Son of a Gun or child of a soldier created in the gun turrets.
