Terry McDonald Concerning Franklin and His Gallant Crew - 1845 (147* d) RE: Concerning Franklin and His Gallant Crew 16 Oct 10


I was feeling slightly guilty about the thread drift here, but then realised that there's a basic error in the song that justifies the discussion on titles - Franklin was not a Lord, only a knight. His wife was Lady Franklin, of course, but that was simply a courtesy title.

I reviewed a couple of Canadian books on Franklin a year or two ago - Martyn Beardsley's 'Deadly Winter: the Life of Sir John Franklin' and John Wilson's 'John Franklin: Traveller on Undiscovered Seas.' Both are pretty good, with the Beardsley one being the more scholarly.
