Seafarers: Fighting Sail by A.B.C. (ED.) WHIPPLE

Chatham, England, 1771. Sails flogged and tavern signs creaked. An officer of the Royal Navy was walking along the waterfront when a youngster approached him. The boy was neat, and he projected an air of quiet self-assurance. He did not ask for money, as the officer had expected him to. He had a sea bag over his shoulder, and he wanted directions. Where could he find the Raisonnable? And how could he get out to her? His Majestys ship of the line Raisonnable lay in the Medway River estuary, along with other warships that had recently been recommissioned. The youngster confided that he not only knew the name of the Raisonnables commander, Captain Maurice Suckling, but he was, in fact, Sucklings 12-year-old nephew Horatio Nelson. He was reporting for duty as a midshipman.
