Details

Horatio Nelson's first captain was William Locker who recognised the exceptional talents of the young midshipman who was to become the most famous sailor in history.

 

Thirty-seven years later Admiral Lord Nelson wrote to Locker 'I have been your scholar; it was you who taught me to board a Frenchman by your conduct. It is you who always taught me to lay a Frenchman close and you will beat him. My only merit in my profession is being a good scholar'.

 

Captain William Locker's career as a Sea Captain fighting the King's enemies on the high seas makes gripping reading and high drama. It not only gives the reader an overdue biography of Captain Willian Lockyer but also reveals much about Nelson and his development that is both informative and important.
