[Newington, London – August] Thursday morning, at eleven o'clock, a duel took place at Newington, between Lieut. M. and another commissioned officer of the navy, occasioned by a dispute that arose on Monday evening at a tavern in Holborn. The ground being measured, the latter officer fired first, and wounded Lieut. M. in the sword arm; notwithstanding Lieut. M. fired, and wounded his antagonist in a manner that it is thought he cannot survive. The seconds interfered, and the matter was settled. The Daily Universal Register, 29 Aug 1786, p. 3.
[Portsmouth – May 20] This day, a duel was fought on Southsea Common, between Lieutenants JOHNSON and PROTHER, of the Marines, when, upon the fifth fire (Mr. Prother's pistol having missed fire twice), the former received a wound from the wrist to the shoulder, in the left arm.—The dispute arose on board his Majesty's ship Monarch.
