John Pearse

As promised in my last post, here is some detail on the life of John Pearse, RN. This comes from The Naval and Military Press' 2003 reprint of the 1849 publication "A Naval Biographical Dictionary, comprising the life and services of every living officer in her majesty's navy, from the rank of Admiral of the fleet to that of Lieutenant, inclusive" (They liked long and explicit names them days!). The entry includes mention of the article I posted the other day.

Next time, a bit closer to home with the adventures of Dumont D'Urville in one of my favourite places on earth: French Pass.
