1797: George Abercrombie Fox possessed of enormous talent and courage, although virtually devoid of noble patronage, now serves as second lieutenant in the His Majesty's frigate Duchess.
With his humble background and experience of the lower deck he is something of an expert at leading a press gang, but whilst ashore he has an unexpected experience with a rival gang.
