The voyage of HMS HERALD

ASH95 HERALD-Lord Howe

A telephone call from one of our excellent past contributors to the print edition of Australian Sea Heritage, Ron Stannus, sent us back to the magazine’s archives seeking out a particular story Ron had submitted back in 2008.

It is a story of survey work in the 1850s and Ron weaves the tale of Captain Henry Mangles Denham RN and his remarkable survey voyage of nine years.

You can read the full story from the Australian Sea Heritage archives here.
