Malta has an interesting web site
If anyone has an original story of an actual event that occur between 1793 - 1815 to the Royal Navy and would like to post it at this site please let me know.
Several People have asked for information about specific people who served in the Royal Navy. I now have a reference book available that will allow me to give information to individuals about specific officers. If you have someone you would like me to check on just send me e-mail. I can also look up specific ships.
