Can a captains mast be appealed?
It is the USN form of Non-Judicial punishment which exists in all the services under different names. It is, as the title suggests, not judicial and penalties could take the form of cancellation of leaves, extra make-work, etc. mast is part of a ship and this term is used in the Navy and to some extent the Marines. I don"t think it can be appealed, as it is not a court-martial or anything that serious. There is no counterpart in civilian Life to the article l5, a very remote cousin might be the unpopular buit here-to-stay alternate side of the street parking laws which are (Chicken) laws par excellence! so it goes.
