    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Oh... That man evokes conflicting emotions. The commander of the most overwhelming Swedish Naval victory ever, Svensksund. The Swedish Trafalgar. And he is also the man who surrendered the impregnable fortress Sveaborg.

    Persephone is a steel logging tug used in the filming of the CBC Television series The Beachcombers. Built as a small tug named John Henry, it is today preserved as a museum ship in the town of Gibsons, British Columbia.
    The tug was built in 1965 for Harry "Smitty" Smith, of Smith's Marina in Gibsons, by local boat builder John F Gooldrup. As John Henry, the tug was used as a small tug and work boat in the waters of the Sunshine Coast. In 1972, the vessel was chartered by CBC Television to portray a log salvage boat owned by the central character Nick Adonidas in the series "The Beachcombers".[1] The tug's television name, taken from the Greek goddess Persephone, reflects Nick Adonidas' Greek heritage.

    The brewery wrote the following about this beer.

    "Early in WW2 the British Expeditionary Force and its allies were evacuated from Dunkirk (Dunkerque) when cut off by German forces. An armada of civilian and naval boats with RAF fighter cover enabled 198,000 British and 140,000 French and Belgian troops to be rescued from the beaches. Six boats from Leigh-on-Sea set sail on 31st May 1940 to join that armada (Renown, Reliant, Endeavour, Letitia, Resolute and Defender). Five returned home after the rescue – but the Renown struck a mine and was lost with its 4 crew. "

    Name:  HMS_St_Vincent_(1908).jpg
Views: 42
Size:  153.6 KB

    HMS St Vincent was the lead ship of her class of three dreadnought battleships built for the Royal Navy in the first decade of the 20th century. After commissioning in 1910, she spent her whole career assigned to the Home and Grand Fleets, often serving as a flagship. Aside from participating in the Battle of Jutland in May 1916, during which she damaged a German battlecruiser, and the inconclusive Action of 19 August several months later, her service during World War I generally consisted of routine patrols and training in the North Sea. The ship was deemed obsolete after the war and was reduced to reserve and used as a training ship. St Vincent was sold for scrap in 1921 and broken up the following year.
    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    A note on the cap tally.



    • HMS Hero (1759), a 74-gun third rate launched in 1759, a prison ship after 1793, renamed Rochester in 1800, and broken up 1810
    • HMS Hero (1803), a 74-gun third rate launched in 1803 and wrecked on 25 December 1811, with the loss of all her crew, inside the northern Haaks about five or six miles from the Texel[1]
    • HMS Hero (1816), a 74-gun third rate launched in September 1816, renamed Wellington in December, becoming the training ship Akbar in 1862 and broken up 1908
    • HMS Hero (1858), a screw-propelled 91-gun second rate, launched in 1858 and sold 1871. This was the vessel in which the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) sailed on his tour of Canada and the United States in 1860
    • HMS Hero (1885), a Conqueror-class turret ship launched in 1885 and sunk as a target in 1908
    • HMS Hero (H99), an H-class destroyer launched in 1936 and transferred to Canada as HMCS Chaudiere in 1943, broken up 1946

    There were also at least three hired armed vessels that bore the name Hero. There were two cutters and one lugger.
    The 1970s BBC television drama series Warship was set aboard a fictional Royal Navy Leander-class frigate, HMS Hero.

    HMS Temeraire was a 98-gun second-rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy. Launched in 1798, she served during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, mostly on blockades or convoy escort duties. She fought only one fleet action, the Battle of Trafalgar, but became so well known for her actions and her subsequent depictions in art and literature that she has been remembered as "The Fighting Temeraire".
    Built at Chatham Dockyard, Temeraire entered service on the Brest blockade with the Channel Fleet. Missions were tedious and seldom relieved by any action with the French fleet. The first incident of note came when several of her crew, hearing rumours they were to be sent to the West Indies at a time when peace with France seemed imminent, refused to obey orders. This act of mutiny eventually failed and a number of those responsible were tried and executed. Laid up during the Peace of Amiens, Temeraire returned to active service with the resumption of the wars with France, again serving with the Channel Fleet, and joined Horatio Nelson's blockade of the Franco-Spanish fleet in Cadiz in 1805. At the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October, the ship went into action immediately astern of Nelson's flagship, HMS Victory. During the battle Temeraire came to the rescue of the beleaguered Victory, and fought and captured two French ships, winning public renown in Britain.
