Nobbys Facts

Most pirates had two perfectly good eyes. By wearing an eye patch at all times the covered eye would become highly sensitive, making it ideal to navigate at night using the stars.
Modern Day soldiers are taught a similar night vision technique during basic training, to assist them when fighting under the cover of darkness.

    So are Solidiers, they are tought to close their 'aiming eye' when a bright light flares up. I still do it to this day when going for a p*zz at night, that way you don't fall over stuff on the way back to bed!
