SUMMARY: Cartoon showing English sailor beating French nobleman with walking stick while dog attacks the man's poodle; sign above pub door reads, "Keppel's cordial. Harland's intire"; portrait of Admiral Keppel is the sign for the pub. British war ship "Victory" in background.The "Victory" is associated with the French and British naval battle off Ushant in July 1778. The reference to Keppler is acrimonious, as he was court martialled as the result of his conduct during battle. Harland was Keppel's second in command. Sayer sides with Keppel, who had been set up by Sir Hugh Palliser following the stalemate of a battle. Keppel, who won acquittal without comment, was championed by the common sailors.
