Happy Birthday, Admiral Collingwood! Cake for you, and a Freebie for your Friends!
In honour of Admiral Collingwood’s 264th birthday, Emma Collingwood (not related) offers the story “Last Service”, an excerpt from the book “The Radiant Boy – Four Ghost Stories in the Age of Sail”, for free download over at her website.
The beautiful illustrations were done by the amazing Amandine de Villeneuve.
Old Cuddy, Horatio Nelson and the Victory in one tale, who could ask for more? Have fun!
