Footnotes

  • The Merchantile Marine Services Association was set up by Liverpool Shipowners and Master Mariners in 1857, in response to the harsh Shipping Laws of 1850. They formed a Committee a year later with the intention of promoting the training of young Officers for the Merchant Navy and the Admiralty responded by loaning them the Corvette HMS Conway, which was to be moored in the Mersey. Proving to be too small, she was replaced in 1861 by HMS Winchester (and renamed Conway) which remained in place until 1876 when replaced by the two deck 2nd Rate battleship HMS Nile, which remained as the eponymous Training Ship until she foundered in the Menai Straight in 1953.
