Kingston. ________________________________________________________________________ This book was originally written by Kingston quite early on in his career as a writer.
As he died in 1880 he predeceased the Queen by quite a few years.
The book was bought up to date, including, we believe, some input by George Henty, the writer of numerous books for boys, who had been a friend of Kingston’s.
So this edition presses on a quarter of a century beyond Kingston’s death. Much the same can be said about the parallel book -Our Soldiers- which is also to be found on the Athelstane website. Most of the stories are, surprisingly enough, actually military ones. It is surprising how often naval forces were engaged in direct support of military actions.
It was not just the Relief of Mafeking in which they were involved, though of course through the writings of Baden-Powell most of us have heard of that event. The book is laid out in a way that is slightly different from the usual Kingston book is presented, but we hope we have followed the book fairly faithfully. ________________________________________________________________________ OUR SAILORS; GALLANT DEEDS OF THE BRITISH NAVY DURING QUEEN VICTORIA’S REIGN, B...
