1). Congratulations to Dr Joe Krulder whose book on the scapegoating of Admiral Byng has been commissioned by Routledge, and is due to be published in April 2019.
2). A production of Handel's "Triumph of Tide and Truth", which was published (in a heavily revised version from his earlier versions) shortly after Admiral Byng's execution, and was at least partly inspired by the injustice of both the verdict and sentence, will take place on Friday, October 19th at King's Place.
3) You can find Piers Plowright's 2016 article on "The Musket Ball" in the Camden Review.
