(Online) books / resource links: Memoir of Admiral Sir Graham Moore

Very special thanks for this tip go out to , who really made my day with it. And I could imagine some of you will have a big smile on their faces as well!

We’re talking about Google Book Search – here you can find books whose copyright has ran out in the USA. With more modern works, this can be a bit tricky due to different laws, but as for the people we’re interested in, you can download without fear of persecution. Of course I always recommend to actually buy a book, but as with this one, it’s almost impossible to get your hands on it, because it was written in 1844…!

MEMOIR OF ADMIRAL SIR GRAHAM MOORE
G.C.B G.C.M.G.
by
Major-General
Sir Robert Gardiner, K.C.B.

“THE OFFICERS OF
HER MAJESTY’S NAVY AND ARMY,
The Following Memoir
of
Admiral Sir Graham Moore
is respectfully dedicated by
A BROTHER OFFICER
March, 1844.

For those of you who skipped all my Moore-posts (how could you!) I’d like to point at my icon and at

Graham Moore

You can even download the book as a PDF!

Then I’d like to recommend the website of ,

SAILING NAVIES

and the forum to go with it:

SAILING NAVIES – THE FORUM

“Of special interest is the “Life at Sea and on Shore” section, which contains information about daily life.”

Many, many useful and interesting information to be found there!
