Re: Le Conquerant

It's not clear well, to me, anyway) what you're asking. Do you know this Marine's name? Do you know what ship he was serving in before being assigned to Conquérant 's prize crew? If you know those, he would be in his "home" ship's muster book. Conquérant was an old ship, condemned at Toulon but drag...

Re: Russian Fleet in the Mediterranean

Senyavin deserves to be better known outside Russia. The British navy was not the only successful navy of the FRAN wars. The sneers of nastily hyperchauvinistic British officers (Collingwood: Senyavin's victory at Athos or Lemnos was "a sort of a battle"; the ineffectual Duckworth, rejecting Senyavi...

OTTOMAN NAVY: A few years ago (or perhaps several years ago by now), there was a project under way to compile a directory of Ottoman sailing warships comparable to the volumes already issued by Seaforth Publishing under the general title <Nationality> Warships in the Age of Sail , including three vo...

Re: Portuguese Navy

The Portuguese navy maintained a high “operational tempo” for the time, with half of its dozen or so ships of the line in service even in peacetime. The Portuguese were especially active in patrolling outside the Strait of Gibraltar to keep North African raiders penned inside the Mediterranean and t...

@byronvaw

This isn't a modeling site and has very few correspondents, so you are not likely to get any other response. You would be better served by looking for dedicated ship modeling sites and asking there.

Re: Names of English cannons

Frank L. Fox, A Distant Storm: The Four Days' Battle of 1666 (Rotherfield, East Sussex: Press of Sail Publications, 1996), has a table of "ordnance and manning" for each fleet. For English ordnance, the following mixture of names and shot weight designations is used (with Fox's conversion weights): ...

Re: French ships of the Nine Years War / War of the Grand Alliance

Answering this question would require a comprehensive knowledge of the ships, navies, and naval battles of the period and a lack of nationalistic bias on the part of the analyst. I have the latter—I'm not British, Dutch, or French—but not the former. N.A.M. Rodger discusses enemy navies in The Comma...

Re: Captain of HMS Victory in 1818

The fact that there two glasses with the letters ML indicates that each attendee on July 1, 1818 did not get one with his initials. ML = 1050 doesn't make any sense. I did not see a captain of Victory in Winfield with the initials "M.L.", either. However, when Victory was a flagship, Winfield someti...

Re: Captain of HMS Victory in 1818

According to Rif Winfield, British Warships in the Age of Sail, 1793–1817: Design, Construction, Careers and Fates (London: Chatham Publishing, 2005), p. 3, which includes operational careers of ships after 1817 if they were in the navy in 1817, Victory was in ordinary from 1813 to 1823, undergoing ...
