HMS Galatea crew details about 1867?
January 26, 2010
Trying to find list of crew for hma Galatea 1867'ish. Hope you can help
There are any number of articles about HMS Galatea and the Duke in command, but I cannot turn up any crew
eg See my article at URL:
Thanks very much Mac, it's a start.
The reason I am trying to find out is:- I acquired a walking stick and on a metal plate on the stick the inscription is:-
HMS GALATEA, H B TRISTRAM (who I think was a crew member) from J M MILNER (who I think was the reverend on the ship) and HOROWIKI WAIKA?
I was trying to find out a little about it-curiosity killed the cat?
I can confirm that the Chaplain of HMS Galatea was the Reverend John Milner.
H B Tristram held a Doctorate of Law and was an author, he may well have been onboard Galatea as a guest and observer of the local scene as the ship sailed around the world.
Horo wini wakai sounds a bit like Maori or polynesian.
