Frederick Chamier

Captain Frederick Chamier R.N. (1796-1870) entered the navy in 1809 aboard the Salsette, which took part in the Walcheren expedition, and served in Fame, Arethusa, Menelaus and Britomart. Between 1810 and 1827 he was employed chiefly in the Mediterranean but left the Navy as a commander in 1833 (he was promoted to captain in 1856). After leaving the navy he edited an important continuation of James' ‘Naval History' and wrote several sea novels.

Many of his novels are not copyright in many countries and some are available as free eBooks
