The Montague

On arriving at a foreign port after a voyage, the seamen’s first destination was often the brothel; as a result, at Lisbon in 1661 thirty seven members of the Montague’s crew of 300 went down with VD.

The Montague

Off the coast of Algiers in 1661, the surgeons mate of the Montague, James Yonge, noted two deaths and three serious wounds caused by splinters, and only two wounds caused by shots; one man, whose knee had been torn by a bullet, died the next day after the surgeon had refused to amputate, simply dressing the wound instead.
