Bishop Mark Hildesley and his household were greeted on the morning of 28th February 1760 by the thunder of cannon. From Jurby Head they witnessed the sea battle between three Royal Navy vessels under Commander John Elliot and three vessels of the French Royale under Francois Thurot - a battle in which Thurot was killed. Despite celebrating with the Royal Navy, Thurot was widely mourned in the Island, where he was known from the running trade.

As 1st March is Dydd Dewi Sant, St David's Day, we celebrate a Welshman, A S B Davies, who, in 1952 and 1954, produced two booklets of stories in Manx.
