But there's something that, having read Patrick O'Brian's novels I've never 
seen and am quite curious about. 

What, exactly is Soused Hog's Face; how is it prepared, and what does it 
look like on being served? Is it any good?

Firsthand descriptions and images would especially be appreciated - I've 
already googled it without much luck.

And oh yeah, if you've ever actually had a Drowned Baby I'd like to know 
about that too.
