A Middy’s Recollections, 1853-1860 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from A Middy's Recollections, 1853-1860 If my memory serves me rightly, we did not indulge in much study at that school. We used to walk out to Southsea Common in twos and twos to play games, and, if opportunity offered, to have rows with what we called the cads, the youth of the town a pastime which the usher encouraged. It was a very rough school. The food was execrable; many of us were cooped up in the same room; and I have a vivid remembrance of the foot-pan which we were allowed to use only once a week. On birthdays, or other select occasions, the chosen few were regaled with very large junks of bread sparsely besmeared with butter, and tea in the parlour, about p.m. Our host and hostess being at that time well into their second glass of toddy, and drowsy though attempting to amuse us with old sea stories.

My Adventures During the Late War: A Narrative of Shipwreck, Captivity, Escapes From French Prisons, and Sea Service in 1804-14

Donat Henchy O?Brien?was born in County Clare during the month of March 1785. Of his odd combination of names, the first was one common in the sept of the O?Briens since the earliest ages: it has nothing to do with St. Donatus, as the casual reader might suppose, but represents the old Erse Donough or Donoght.?His second name came from his mother, a Miss Henchy, sister of Counsellor Fitz-Gibbon Henchy, a Dublin lawyer of some repute in his day. Of Donat?s father we find nothing more in O?Byrne?sNaval Biography?than the characteristically Hibernian statement that ?he was descended from one of the ancient monarchs of Ireland.?Donat O?Brien entered the navy on 16th December 1796, when only eleven, starting even younger than the average of the midshipmen of those hard days. Apparently he owed his introduction to the service to Captain (afterwards Rear-Admiral) Edward Walpole Brown, whom he styles ?his early patron.? His first vessel was the?Overyssel?(64), a Dutch line-of-battle ship which had been?seized in Cork Harbour in 1795, where it was lying when Holland was forced to yield to France and to become her subservient ally. In this vessel he served for three years, under Captains Young and Bazely, mainly in the North Sea squadron. He was present in her at the surrender of the Dutch fleet in the Texel on 30th August 1799, during the futile campaign of the Duke of York. Later in the same year the?Overyssel?was engaged in the blockading of three Dutch men-of-war which had run into the port of Goeree. While in charge of an old merchant ship, which was to be sunk at the mouth of the harbour, for the more effectual shutting in of the fugitives, O?Brien was in great peril. The vessel was overset in a sudden gale, and he had a narrow escape from drowning, being saved at the last moment by a boat of the?Lion?cutter.
