    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.

    The Galley of Lorne is the Symbol of Somerled, Lord of Lorne, King of the Western Isles, who pushed out the Vikings and set up the present Clan system. His eldest son was Dougall, his second Donald, etc from whom the MacDougalls, the MacDonalds and several of the other clans are descended. The Campbells also used it after marrying heiresses. The MacDougall Galley is special as it depicts Somerled's own Galley at the sea battle at the Isle of Man, when he finally defeated the Viking King of Man in a night battle, where he rallied his fleet by having a burning brazier at the top of his mast. The Campbell's of Craignish also have a unique coat of arms, because they are descended from a MacDougall heiress. It consists of a Galley of Lorne with the shield of the Campbells superimposed. The MacDougall shield is the Galley of Lorne crossed with the Lion of Scotland to show how Royal MacDougalls are!

    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.

    Something rather more humble for the Great Britain I'm afraid.

    The only pub in Bristol to depict the Great Britain is the Portwall Tavern.

    SS Great Britain is a museum ship and former passenger steamship, which was advanced for her time. She was the longest passenger ship in the world from 1845 to 1854. She was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel for the Great Western Steamship Company's transatlantic service between Bristol and New York. While other ships had been built of iron or equipped with a screw propeller, Great Britain was the first to combine these features in a large ocean-going ship. She was the first iron steamer to cross the Atlantic, which she did in 1845, in the time of 14 days.
    The ship is 322 ft (98 m) in length and has a 3,400-ton displacement. She was powered by two inclined 2 cylinder engines of the direct-acting type, with twin 88 in (220 cm) bore, 6-foot (1.8 m) stroke cylinders. She was also provided with secondary sail power. The four decks provided accommodation for a crew of 120, plus 360 passengers who were provided with cabins, dining, and promenade saloons.
    When launched in 1843, Great Britain was by far the largest vessel afloat. However, her protracted construction and high cost had left her owners in a difficult financial position, and they were forced out of business in 1846 having spent all their funds re-floating the ship after she was run aground at Dundrum Bay after a navigational error. In 1852 she was sold for salvage and repaired. Great Britain carried thousands of immigrants to Australia from 1852 until converted to sail in 1881. Three years later, she was retired to the Falkland Islands where she was used as a warehouse, quarantine ship and coal hulk until scuttled in 1937.[2]
    In 1970, following a cash donation by Sir Jack Hayward that paid for the vessel to be towed back to the UK, Great Britain was returned to the Bristol dry dock where she was built. Now listed as part of the National Historic Fleet, she is an award-winning visitor attraction and museum ship in Bristol Harbour, with between 150,000 and 200,000 visitors annually.
    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.

    The Invincible was a 74-gun French ship of the line, later a third-rate of the Royal Navy.
    During the early part of the 18th century British ship designers had made few significant advances in design, whereas French shipbuilding benefited from a remarkably creative period. At the time of the capture of Invincible, there was not one 74-gun ship in the Royal Navy. By 1805 at the battle of Trafalgar, three quarters of British ships of the line were of this singular design and the 74-gun ship had become the backbone of all major navies of the world.
    Invincible was one of the first trio of a new and longer type of 74-gun ships. Until 1738, French 74s had been little more than 154 (French) feet in gundeck length, carrying just thirteen pairs of 36-pdr guns on the lower deck, fourteen pairs of 18-pdr guns on the upper deck and eight pairs of 8-pdr guns on the quarterdeck and forecastle, with the balance of the 74 guns made up of four small 4-pdr guns on the poop.
    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.

    The origin of the Ostrich name has caused some controversy among historians.

    King Edward III's eldest son, the Black Prince (1330-1376), the first Prince of Wales, had three ostrich feathers painted on the shield he used for jousting.

    That heraldry is now used by Prince Charles.

    Others think (without any foundation) that the hostelry was named after a ship called the Ostrich which was moored nearby.

    Or could the name be derived from "Oyster Reach", a name by which the nearby Trin Mills pond was, it's said, once known?



    [Judging by the inn sign the current owners have gone for the moored ship explanation - Naharaht.]
