This should maybe be on the History Forum; but it ties in with the thread. One of the pirates in T.I. was Isirial Hands. Was there a real life Isrial Hands involved in the Mutiny on the Bounty? 8O :?:
Jesse, I am an old f*rt tis true, but the friggin Bounty, I think we should ask Granny. 8O :wink:
My mate Israel Hands was 2 i/c to Edward Teach, known as 'Blackbeard'. He was eventually given command of a captured vessel, the 'Adventure.
This was in 1718 and I was only a bit of a lad but I remember it well.
The Bounty episode was in 1789 by which time my mate 'Issy' was long gone. (with thanks to the net!)
Can I go back to sleep now?
Are you sure its black, and where is it?
If its in your hand you got trouble.
If its in your nicks you got worse trouble 8O
