The Black Knight
Archibald Fitzwilliam Lewis Dexter, always known to his friends as Archie, leant against the less than sturdy rail running up to the bow of the Royal Navy frigate, HMS Leander. Leander was known as a 4th rate, the smallest and most vulnerable of all the Royal Navy’s warships. Along with many of the three hundred and forty strong crew he was scouring the shimmering horizon keenly for the first telltale sign of the sails that might at last reveal the presence of the French fleet.
