The Australian navy as far as I am aware goes all the way to the pole, but only does their sector of course.
I think whoever penned that little ditty may have done it before radios, so if something happened down their you were cactus. I would not like to be in a sinking ship waiting for the Navy, particular if we had an Skipper like the one in Italy.
