Just before the end of the citadel Mr Monkey found the action steering position, used to control the ship when in battle. He had a quick look at the compasses beside the wheels, then went through another bulkhead onto the half deck. He was now in the area for officers and marines and to prove it found a circular stand holding the officer's Colt Navy 1851 Pattern revolvers, along with racks of rifles for the marines.
You can read about the Colt Navy 1851 Pattern at the Royal Museums Greenwich website.
