Scraps by E. C. Coleman

Book Description

An "Official Beggar" has been established in the Hungarian village of Szent-Marton, in order to keep off vagrants and gipsies. At Sheffield the other day, at an inquest on the body of a crippled dwarf, who while drunk had received fatal injuries by falling down stairs, it was stated that he had been in the infirmary with broken limbs no fewer than thirty-three times. These and other interesting snippets are contained within the pages of "Scraps", an irreverent look at Victorian life from the newspapers of the day.

With the exception of the royal marines, who adopted light infantry rank insignia from their earliest days, the Royal Navy was slow to introduce distinguishing rate badges for those serving on the 'lower deck'. Even when they were introduced, in 1853, the corresponding introduction of a uniform was still four years away.
