PAY AND PRIZE MONEY IN THE OLD NAVY, 1776 TO 1899

Money To Be Made

------------------------------------
This particular article maybe about as 'dry' as a powder puff to read for some.....but....yes there is always a "but" isn't there.  But if you've ever wondered what the Captains, Admirals, etc...etc...as well as the Navy crews got paid in the old Navy....well then this article is for you to let your eyes dance over the words.

Actually you would not believe what some....[few] ...of the high ranking brass got when they capture vessels of the enemy....for the time period we are talking about this was HUGE amounts of cash.  And if you can read this...and it holds your interest.....it has a "ton" and I do mean a "ton" of info on the pay scale of the Navy crews of the Old Navy.

I'll leave it at that....let you decide for yourself if you wish to give it a go....if so just click on the link below
