  I suspect he may have been rather unbalanced. He was taken ill twice while Juno was being fitted up, and his behaviour at the court martial was odd. As you say, no further commissions.
   Great grandfather ended his time as Admirals cox'n on the Lord Warden in 1874, so he wasn't deterred by Fremantle!
   I must find the report of the banquet in Ireland.
  Just seen your post about the Bombay Gazette - is that on FindMyPast?

  Found it! Haven't read it all yet, but it appears to be a bit racier than the English papers.

  Thanks for your input, Mckha. I have been looking through the Australian papers today.
