This book details the sinking of the HMS Vanguard outside of Dun Laoghaire port in 1875.

While the only fatality of the incident was the Captain's little white dog, it provides valuable insight into naval and military history of the late nineteenth century. Moreover, the backdrop of naval life, the social and economic situation for sailors and officers alike, the subsequent court-martial and the furore it caused make for fascinating reading.
