Pirates of Devil's Cove (UN-C-739)
Notes: Both British privateers and buccaneers were a huge thorn in the side of the Spanish, French and Dutch fleets.
While the country was at war, the buccaneers forceful boarding and taking of enemy ships and it's cargo was considered perfectly legal. However when that war or dispute ended, that same crew who weeks before were encouraged to board enemy ships were now told that they could not.
Unsurprisingly crews often found it difficult to stop, and thus by default now became pirates and criminals.
The crew of the Bloody Molly however, have no such excuses. Pirates from the first - they attacked Spanish, Dutch, French and British ships alike.
They soon became the most feared and wanted ship on the high seas during this 'golden age of piracy'.
