Marryat, Frederick: The King's Own. v1. 20 Apr 2013
Captain Frederick Marryat (10 July 1792 – 9 August 1848) was an English Royal Navy officer, novelist, and a contemporary and acquaintance of Charles Dickens, noted today as an early pioneer of the sea story. He is now known particularly for the semi-autobiographical novel Mr Midshipman Easy and his children's novel The Children of the New Forest, and for a widely used system of maritime flag signalling, known as Marryat's Code.
In this nautical book Marryat leads us much more closely into the horrors of naval warfare. The story opens with the hanging of a man who had been a ring-leader in the Mutiny of the Nore, which had affected practically all of the fleet. The way in which the prisoner is tortured before the hanging is pretty gruesome.
