During my February visit to the UK and Ireland my journalist friend, Chris Redman, invited me to visit the small church in Petersham, West London, where Capt. George Vancouver is resting. (Capt. George Vancouver died at 40 years of age)

I remind readers both Capt. Vancouver and Capt. Bligh were sailing under Capt. James Cook during his third (and final) voyage into the Pacific.
