The Naval Mutinies of 1797 Part II

By D. Bonner Smith , published February 1936


Bonner Smith continues from the point where the Board of Admiralty departed for Portsmouth as detailed in Part I. By means of the documents produced by the representatives of the mutineers and the official responses of the Admiralty and the senior staff dealing directly with them, he takes the reader from the evening of Sunday 16 April to Saturday 22 April when the majority of the demands had been met and the King’s Pardon had been received. The consequences of the Pardon and a number of grievances of individual ships are covered at a later date.
