Title: Loyalty
Rating: K+ (Suitable for ages 13 and above)
Disclaimers: Names given in this story are fictional and any relation to an actual person, living or dead, is purely incidental.
Original pen-date: 24 November 2010
Summary: A chance meeting of two countrymen aboard a prison hulk. May 1780.
Author's Note: The dialect contained herein is mostly the result of me winging it, but it seemed fitting. If I've gotten any of that wrong, I apologise. After the siege of Charleston, the American squadron under Commodore Abraham Whipple was captured. Included in this number were roughly two hundred Continental Marines. There are mentions of these American naval prisoners being accommodated aboard hulks in Charleston harbour. I do not know for certain if British Marines were employed as guards on these hulks so I am taking a bit of liberty with that. Interestingly, however, Continental Marines truly did have green coats!

Title: Like Ghosts
Rating: K+ (Suitable for ages 13 and above)
Disclaimers: The world of Richard Bolitho is the sole creation of Alexander Kent. I'm only borrowing a very small part of it. Names given in this story are fictional and any relation to an actual person, living or dead, is purely incidental.
Original pen-date: 7 November 2010
Summary: Bolitho-verse/other canon. A pair of soldiers struggle to find their way without a regiment to support them. March 1784.
Author's Note: This is the result of an attack of inspiration yesterday, while re-reading Command A King's Ship. The mention of two 'tattered veterans' relying on handouts managed somehow to stir up an insistent plot bunny. I'm tying it into one of my own one-shots ("Scarlet and White") as well.

This may even be a fitting Remembrance Day sort of story.

Original pen-date: 14 January 2010
Summary: The Massachusetts Line fights at Princeton. January 1777. (A Strout and Leech adventure.)
Author's Note: No direct mention is made of the role played in this battle by Massachusetts regiments, so I am bending history the barest bit to give them one. The title is taken from a quote that George Washington reportedly made during the battle.
