Footnotes

  • Moss was a naval surgeon who spent most of his short career and life in foreign seas. A lot of Moss' letters, literature and art were about his first ship 'HMS Bulldog'. Sadly his dramatic life at sea came to a mysterious end when in 1880 his boat 'HMS Atalanta' disappeared without a trace off Bermuda.
