I read in the book U-Boat 977 by Heinz Schaeffer about a tradition in the German navy that concerns a social/comedic action called the, 'Beer report'. Does anyone know what that is about and in particular when it started?

Thanks

I read this book many years ago but I can't recall anything about a 'beer report', sorry.
