    Hi Louis

    As it happens I have just transcribed a journal of one of my neighbour’s relatives who was in the West African squadron in 1873 on board the HMS Barracouta during the 3rd Ashanti War.

    Information in this journal (50 pages long) may not be relevant to you, as it isn’t in the timeframe that you are studying, but if you think it may be please let me know and I’ll seek my neighbour’s permission for you to see it.

    Regards
