Re: Navy recruitment

One important feature of the press that hasn't been mentioned is that they didn't just work ashore, they were perhaps more effective at boarding home-coming vessel and conscripting the men, all of whom were seamen, sometimes (though by no means always) leaving only enough men to get the ship into po...
