“Uncle. Do you know that Dutch merchantman we passed this morning?  It has turned and is following us,” young Ben Taylor reported.  “It has taken down its flag and put up an odd black one instead.”

“Uncle Will” immediately ordered that the East India Company colours be lowered from his own gaff, and that the White Ensign be hoisted.

“Clear the decks,” he shouted, and the men of HMS Greyhound pulled canvas off of their “cargo” revealing the ship’s 18 guns.  The ruse had worked again and yet another pirate was going to feel Commander “Uncle Will” Monroe’s Greyhound’s bite.
