Background Story

Middlemore Arms.png

The social advancement of himself and his family; a keen interest in sailing and the sea; and a dutiful desire to serve King and Country were the reasons for joining the Royal Navy. The son of a Cumberland burgher, Robert grew up in the commercial port of Whitehaven where he acquired a fascination with ships. Excelling his studies, it took little encouragement from his father to guide him into the life of adventure, danger, and potential glory offered by the Royal Navy.
