Reiver 2 Folklore: Brave Benbow (29) RE: Folklore: Brave Benbow 21 Mar 08

More clarification of comments in the previous thread: Two of the other 7 ship in Benbow's squadron stayed with him in the battle. Both were smaller ships apparently, (frigates?) the "Falmouth" and the "Ruby." Richard Kirkby's ship was the "Defiant." Wade's ship was the "Greenwich". Kirkby and Wade were executed - by shooting, not by hanging. (Herman, "To Rule the Waves", p 246)
