Footnotes

  • Lawhill was built at the Caledon Shipbuilding & Engineering Company yard of W. B. Thompson in Dundee, Scotland, and launched on 24 August 1892. Although her career was not especially remarkable, save perhaps for being consistently profitable as a cargo carrier, in the 1930s Richard Cookson went on board and extensively documented her internals and construction, which was later published in the 'Anatomy of the Ship' series.

    Charles Pears was a keen sailor and painter. During the First World War he served with the Royal Marines as well as being an official war artist. He published several books on small boat cruising and examples of his work are housed in both the Imperial War Museum and National Maritime Museum collections.
