Hi everyone, Greg from the Manuscripts Collection with a wonderful example of the once-commonplace “shipboard diary”.
These pages are from a heavily illustrated diary by George Moore Sinclair (MS 8166) that describes the George's voyage to New Zealand onboard the 'County of Peebles' from November 2nd 1877 - February 25th 1878. The illustrations are in pen and ink, and include watercolour portraits of people on board and of the ship. ✒
The language of this diary is a mixture of English, Scots and Shetland dialect (with Norse influences).
Over the last few days, our TNTA 13 and TETA 2 cadets joined us on a shipboard learning journey to experience how seafaring officers and crew live and work onboard a passenger ship. Taking the classroom out in the middle of the sea, we organised a fireside chat where our GS Sister Mary, Emeritus GS Brother Thomas and WMI lecturers engaged them and shared their passion. Let's continue to strengthen the bond among us and all the best to our cadets!
