… and yet plenty of pirates to talk to!
Here are some images from last week when Captain Burwash visited a school near Wakefield. He expected landlubbers, but found a company of scallywags awaiting him!
They were a helpful bunch, who agreed with him that his jolly roger was not scary enough and immediately set about designing some much more terrifying ones for him.
They were curious too, and soon had Burwash waxing lyrical about pirates and piracy …
They even drew a portrait of him as part of an advertisement for a crew, being careful to list exactly what kind of sailors the captain required. Here you can see the captain posing!
One lad obviously wanted to get every detail right!
