    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.

    Merry Christmas to all!
    Both my girls came up with the same thoughtful gift idea for dear old dad. Nautical themed decanters with glasses. Fortunately they are enough differuent that they compliment rather than duplicate. I set them up in my hobby room.

    In 2016 the Gower Brewery in Swansea, South Wales brewed Janet 1916 to commemorate the Port Eynon Lifeboat disaster .

    On New Year’s Day 1916 the Port Eynon lifeboat, Janet, launched at 11.45am to the aid of the SS Dunvegan which was in difficulties in Oxwich Bay. The storm force conditions were described as the worst in living memory. On completion of the service, the Janet attempted to return to Port Eynon but huge waves capsized her twice and three crew were lost, Coxswain William (Billy) Gibbs, second coxswain William Eynon and George Harry.

    With their oars and mast gone, the then survivors drifted through the night until making shore in Mumbles at daybreak, after more than twenty hours at sea in atrocious conditions.

    A memorial statue of a lifeboat man was placed outside St Cattwg’s Church in Port Eynon, as a tribute to the brave three. It remains standing there 100 years on, its gaze forever searching seaward.

    Cousin Jack Cornish Amber Pale Ale was brewed by St Austell Brewery, Cornwall to raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. Five pence would be donated to the R.N.L.I. for each pint sold. The man pictured is rising Rugby Union star Jack Nowell, who became St Austell Brewery’s Charitable trust ambassador. Jack's dad is a trawlerman in Penlee, Cornwall, who has always had close links with the local lifeboat crew, so Jack grew up with the charity.

    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.

    From the Kings & Convicts Brewing Company of Highwood, Illinois, U.S.A. comes Hougoumont American Pilsner. The “Hougoumont” was the final frigate to transport convicts to Australia from England in 1867.

    Also from the Kings & Convicts Brewing Company comes Johnny Goodspeed = a Vienna style lager.

    The brewery writes," Captain Johnny Smith, a mercenary, pirate, mutineer and dark lager lover sailed to the Americas on the Goodspeed in 1606."

    In the U.K. Captain John Smith is treated less casually. He certainly had an eventful and adventurous life and is mainly remembered for his encounter with the native American princess Pocahontas but he certainly played a big part in establishing the colony at Jamestown.
