GUEST,Observer What are 'Quarterdeck Manners'? (20) RE: What are 'Quarterdeck Manners'? 11 Oct 19


I think we are talking about the right Smyth as opposed to Smith. W.H.Smyth whose nickname was "Mediterranean Smyth" career ended as follows:

On 7 February 1824, he was promoted to Post-Captain, and in November paid off the Adventure, marking the end of his service at sea and his turn to a life of literary and scientific pursuits. In 1846 he retired from the Navy on half-pay, being advanced on the retired list to Rear-Admiral on 28 May 1853, then to Vice-Admiral on 17 May 1858, and finally to Admiral on 14 November 1863
