On the 12th September 1792 there occurred in England the most remarkable court martial in maritime history. Seven naval officers and men were on trial for their lives before the lord’s commissioner of the admiralty on charge of high treason. Revelations of this trial of conditions prevailing on the ships of the British navy came finally to exert an influence in humanising the administration of the world’s navy and making more tolerable life at sea.
