9 July 1901 – Valeri Giovanni

Why did you come on over, Valeri?

The 31-year-old hot-blooded Italian must have rued the day he sailed over. For Valeri Giovanni never made it back across the water to his homeland, after he was ensnared for killing a fellow shipmate.

The Brits didn’t stand for such nautical nonsense and Giovanni was hanged in Bodmin Jail, Cornwall for murder.
