Any reference or similarities to works or characters by any other authors is intended as a tribute not as plagiarism, or is entirely accidental.  In particular thanks to WS Gilbert for the line introducing the Pirate King, to Bernard Cornwell for the 95th Company, which has been changed to the 25th, being the obvious place to put Haggis and his friend Neeps, and to everyone who has ever written a story about pirates, including those in the Caribbean.  I mean, where else would pirates go to ply their trade?

I would like to thank my friend Julie for the inspiration about George’s injury, and hope she has an even speedier recovery than he is going to.
