Sailor’s Blood

1775-1778: The life of a powder monkey on board ship was hard and dangerous. Reloading the big guns in the drifting, acrid smoke and shattering cannon fire. Any moment might bring hidden death.

This was the life George Abercrombie Fox chose for himself at an early age. Serving in the Royal Navy, he was soon fighting aboard an ageing 64, HMS Henrietta, in the war against America. But restlessly searching for glory, he endured where few men could as ambition to be an officer grows."
