Since Patrick O’Brian’s Captain Jno Aubrey, RN is based on this gentleman, this exhibition may be interesting to AoS fans living in and around Edinburgh or planning to go there. Tthe National Museum of Scotland will be housing an exhibition on Thomas Lord Cochrane from October 7th on.
There will be many interesting events like a lecture by Dr David Cordingly who wrote the most recent and very well researched biography on Cochrane. It also looks as if there will be a showing of Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World a.k.a. The Naval Romance.
