This was produced by Sir George Augustus Elliot, captain of HMS Phaeton from 4 December 1849 to 25 January 1853.

Phaeton was converted to a screw frigate in 1859: the attached piece is undated but was clearly written before conversion to steam.

I found the section on the launching of boats and the equiping of armed boats interesting; I expect those of you who are better informed on rigging practice than me will get something from those sections as well.




I don't think it has been posted here before, apologies if it has.
