Prize Money

Prize Money. When discussing First Nudge, Admiral Stoke says that Impérieuse and her crew will be awarded prize money for capturing La Clorinde and her cargo. The board evaluated each enemy vessel, sunk or captured. If deemed a lawful prize, a price was paid and the loot was shared: The Captain received one quarter, his Admiral one eighth (if the Captain was acting under his orders), the 1st Lieutenant and the master one sixteenth each, the remainder of the ward-room shared one eighth, one eighth to the Marines and their officers and the rest of the ship’s company shared the final quarter.
