:D :D :D :roll:
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

I can't find a Rudolf but HMS Reindeer (1804 Brig-Sloop, 1829 Packet Brig, 1866 Sloop, 1883 Screw Sloop)
Of course we would need HMS San Nicolas (1797 3rd Rate Ship of the line ex-Spanish ship San Nicolas captured by a boarding party from HMS Captain led by Horatio Nelson at the Battle of Cape St Vincent)
And the trawler HMS Elf requisitioned in 1917
