now puzzle out HMS VICTOR in E2M1
Well, probably it has something to with this:
The Fall of Edward St John Daniel
There have been several suggestions as to what Daniel's "disgraceful offence" may have been. One suggestion is that Daniel attempted to drown a fellow officer. Another is that his offence was drunkenness, although it seems unlikely that, on its own, this would have been considered sufficiently disgraceful. The clearest evidence, however, is contained in a letter from Capt. William Clifford of HMS Victor Emanuel to Rear Admiral Dacres, which states that Daniel was arrested for "taking indecent liberties with four of the Subordinate Officers of the Victor Emanuel".
Doesn´t make much sense in blood´s context though. But we all agree that it´s a ship´s name, don´t we :p
I´m not sure but maybe there´s a drown body in blood somewhere near or in or below the ship...
