    Norie's Guide as it was commonly known had been around for a while (I note that this is the 11th edition) and in Nelson's navy was what every young midshipman studying for his Lieutenant's exam would be expected to read. 16 shillings was a lot of cash in the 1830s

    As the OP, I would like to thank you all for your contributions and for my education too, this thread is very informative. I am a land lover with an interest in the sea due to my grandfathers one a merchant seamen during period 1926-46 and the subject of my post and the other a herring fisherman/skipper during period 1920-50.

    Best wishes from sunny Shetland.
