A DRY CARD COMPASS REMOVED FROM THE RUSSIAN PRIZE MIRAN DURING THE CRIMEAN WAR OF 1855
the 6in. diameter compass card printed with thirty-two point rose suspended within a gimballed brass bowl with white-painted interior, weighted base and glazed top, contained within a wooden box with sliding lid with applied label reading Compass taken from Russian Prize Miran by E.S. Adeane R.N. and brought to England July 1855 (lid now split) -- 6 x 10 x 10in. (15 x 25.5 x 25.5cm.)
Lot Notes
The Miran [or Myran] was an 80-ton wooden brigantine built at Jacobstad (Finland) in 1834. On 17th April 1855, she was captured by H.M. Ships Desperate [and Archer] in the Baltic during the war with Russia and sent home with a prize crew commanded by Edward Adeane, Mate of the Desperate. The entry in Desperate's log records the incident thus: Proceeded to close a schooner to the South'd. at 5.35am. Mustered at Quarters. 6am. Chase hoisted Russian colours. 7am. Stopped and sent Cutters to take possession of Russian schooner "Myran" laden with coal. H.M.S. Desperate was an 8-gun wooden screw sloop of 1,038 tons, built at Pembroke Dock in 1849 and broken up at Devonport in 1865, which emerged from the Baltic War of 1854-55 with a distinguished record and a battle honour for the campaign.

Vice-Admiral Edward Stanley Adeane, C.M.G., R.N., joined the Royal Navy as a Cadet in June 1850 and was made Sub-Lieut. in 1856 for his services in the Baltic the previous year. His active service also included the Zulu War of 1879, by which time he was a Captain, and he achieved flag rank in 1888. Second-in-command of the Channel Squadron in 1891-92, he was made Vice-Admiral in 1893 prior to his retirement.

1879graves,

Nice updates on Adeane. I like the part about him being in command of the prize crew. Nice start for a young officer.

Thanks Idea
