 Some background information taken from the start of 'The Wynne Dairies':
 
CHAPTER ONE.
 
Thomas Freemantle went to sea at the age of 11 and had already seen a good deal of service, mostly in the West Indies, when this story begins.  As a Midshipman in Phoenix, he was cast away on the coast of Cuba in the great hurricane of 4 October 1780; and three years later was taken prisoner when the sloop Tickler in which he was serving as a lieutenant fell a prize to the French 64-gun ship Triton, but he was soon exchanged for a French officer.
 
He was at home and temporarily unemployed when, in January 1788, he began to correspond regularly with his brother William who was then (aged 19) in Dublin as private secretary to the Lord Lieutenant, their patron the Marquis of Buckingham.  Tom was being initiated into the pleasures of London by his eldest brother John, a captain in the Coldstream Guards and equerry to the Duke of York
