Hutcheson, John C: Young Tom Bowling. V1. 26 July 2009
John Conroy Hutcheson (1840- 1897) was a British author of novels and short stories about life aboard ships at sea.
Hutcheson was born in Jersey, Channel Islands, in 1840, and died in Portsea Island, in late 1896 or early 1897.
This book fills a gap about just how boy seamen were trained at the endof the nineteenth century. From first to last it is very credible, andalso very readable. It was not very easy to transcribe, because theboys we meet come from a variety of country places, and hence have avariety of dialects. In particular one of the boys has a strong Irishbrogue, and another has an equally strong west Hampshire accent. It isthis boy, `Ugly’, that comes to a very sad and noble end.
