John, using the alias, 'James Woods', on 11th June 1805 joined his next ship, the HMS Cleopatra. He had not been pressed.
I don't know much about the Royal Navy. When John Pine first started would he have committed to a certain length of service? It appears he 'jumped ship' on 29th September 1804. Might this be the reason why he used an alias when he joined his second ship on 11th June 1805?
