I have been enjoying the Hornblower TV Movies
. There is one
particularly amusing moment* inThe Frogs and the Lobsters
where Captain Pellew asks if Horatio would like to volunteer for a mission, and I rather doubt that Pellew's definition of the word matches with the more common usage. :)
*And about the only such in that episode as it deals with a forlorn hope from beginning to end. Hornblower learns some painful lessons in this one.
