Days of Sail - Hew Dalrymple

Major-General Sir Hew Whitefoord Dalrymple, the acting governer of Gibralter appears in Mr Midshipman Hornblower when the young Horatio dines at Government House. Either a deliberate anachronism or a failure in continuity Dalrymple did not take office until 1806 over nine years after Hornblower's promotion to lieutenant.
