George Crome was the Captain of HMS Syrtis, a British frigate when it chased a Spanish privateer into the Devil's Teeth at Ferrol, Spain during the time Acting Lieutenant Hornblower was held as prisoner of war there. Hornblower and several Spanish fishermen rescued three crewman from the privateer during a storm and were picked up by Syrtis the next day. After Hornblower explained that he gave his parole that he would not try to escape, and that a boat attempting rescue is not liable for capture under the Admiralty rules, they were returned to A Coruña under flag of truce.
