The Wildgoose Chase

I met Chelsea Pensioner Walter Wildgoose in 1977 when he was 87 and I was 26. Through a series of letters written over the last year of his life, he passed along his life story - the workhouse children's home, a life in the British Army witnessing the opening battles of World War I and life in India, a remarkable family surviving the bombs of World War II London. This blog will document my research and progress on the novel I'm writing about this amazing man.

New Clio Pictures

Every few months, I revisit the internet to see if any new information or pictures have shown up about the workhouse or training ships or British Army in India, etc. I came across several new (to me) images of Walter's training ship, Clio, the other day, though I haven't found much additional information about it beyond what I already have (see previous posts "Training Ship Clio" and "8s a week").

If you know of any good resouces on training ships in the period from 1905-07, pass them along. Thanks!
