I had only vaguely heard of that and reading the wiki entry you realise how petty our major political/economic issues of today are by comparison.
Look at the names of the ships involved, they read like a roll call of the great ships of WWII that we of a later generation made as Airfix models as kids, Hood, Malaya, Norfolk, Repulse, Rodney and the gallant Warspite, and here were their crews walking off singing the Red Flag! Is it any wonder the pound slumped and the stock market crashed? It must have seemed like the End of Times had arrived.
And yet, like the Nore and Spithead, a bit of judicial handling, an acknowledgement of grievances and the quiet removal of a handful of troublemakers and order was soon restored. A very British mutiny indeed.
Right, time to get back on topic.
