The Admiral of the Fleet, The Lord Fieldhouse, Baron of Gosport died at the of 64, after picking up a post-operative infection. Sad that this man who achieved so much should die at such a young age.
You’ll note that I said in the lead para that he was Baron of Gosport, not mentioned on the plaque. I’m not sure why that should be not protocol? I thought I would do a small piece of historic research, looking to see how the social structure of a town or city. Where does a Baron sit in relation to a Mayor for example? I suppose it’s an example of class, with the Mayor being elected by the people, and appointed by the council, and a Baron appointed by the ruling monarch.
questions so far unanswered, I haven’t found that wiki page that’ll give me the answers I want – I’m assuming they are out there somewhere.
Anyhow, it was a very pleasant walk out. Slightly colder than what it has been, but that is only to be expected as we move into Autumn proper. I’m going to have a look out the back in a couple of minutes. When I looked earlier there were practically no clouds are in the sky. I’m willing to bet there are a few stars out. It’s getting toward that time when I want to sit in the garden for a bit with my binoculars. No good with a telescope – quicker and easier to find objects the simple way.
