Description: Scurvy took a terrible toll in the Age of Sail, killing more sailors than were lost in all sea battles combined. The threat of the disease kept ships close to home and doomed those vessels that ventured too far from port. The willful ignorance of the royal medical elite, who endorsed ludicrous medical theories based on speculative research while ignoring the life-saving properties of citrus fruit, cost tens of thousands of lives and altered the course of many battles at sea.

Arcan,
Thank you for taking the time to change them.
The aspect ratio seems broken in my versions because of the crop.
I'll try to crop the whole page from now and make the pictures at least the recommended resolution of 1024x768
Regards
Daniel
