Three small drawings illustrating a cautionary tale...
'...about Three Sailors from Bristol. Sailor hanged from the yard arm, sailor being flogged and humble sailor with an admiral and fighting ship'. This shows the brutal side of Royal naval discipline and punishment. Many crimes, including mutiny and desertion, carried the death penalty in the 1800s, but it was used sparingly. Hanging made public examples of offenders, instilling obedience through terror.
