Re: BBC: Rare Medal Protecting Bearer from Press Gangs on Sh

I recently read a book titled " The Red Rocks Of Eddystone " and it mentioned the problems of Pressing, Smeaton was losing his skilled stonemasons who were building the lighthouse in a shed in Guz dockyard.

Alas the tokens were not always treated with due consideration by the Press gangs, he continued to lose valuable workers.

Great back then, " The Good Old Days " pop out to get the paper and a roll of shag, end up doing a four year stint on a wooden prison with the bonus of possibly drowning.
