‘To keep this body of troops in order, an annual act of parliament likewise passes, ” to punish mutiny and desertion, and for the better payment of the army and their quarters.”  This regulates the manner in which they are to be dispersed among the several inn-keepers and victuallers throughout the kingdom; and establishes a law martial for their government.  By this, among other things, it is enacted, that if any officer or soldier shall excite, or join any mutiny, or knowing of it, shall not give notice to the commanding officer; or shall desert or lift in any other regiment, or, sleep upon his post, or leave it before he is relieved, or hold correspondence with a rebel or enemy, or strike or use violence to his superior officer, or shall disobey, his lawful commands: such offender shall suffer such punishment as a court martial shall inflict, though it extend to death itself.’  — Blackstone, William, Sir.
