    MM 17, 256 is in the middle of an article by Admiral Ballard about British battleships of 1870, so definitely wrong.
    MM 12, 256, certainly lands in the middle of an article by Firth, but that particular page does not seem to be about Blake.
    MM 12, 356 has a follow-up editorial note which confirms that the Robert Blake of Morocco was not the same man as the admiral.

    Typos must be involved in the original reference.
