    • Gardiner was an Agent for Transports by Navy Board and stationed at the Meditterranean Coast of Spain & Portugal from Jul 1794 until Oct 1797

      The Transport Board was set up in 1794 to handle the business of transports and to relieve the Navy Board of a time-consuming task. There had been an earlier Board of Transports between 1689 and 1724.

      The establishment of the new Board was based on experience gained in the War of American Independence and was strongly supported by Sir Charles Middleton (later Lord Barham), the former Controller of the Navy. By 1806 the Board had taken over the business of the Sick and Hurt Board and had also assumed responsibility for Prisoners of War. It was abolished in 1817 with its business being taken over by the Navy Board once again.

      In terms of the Transport Service, the Board was responsible for ?the hiring and appropriating of Ships and Vessels for the conveyance of Troops and Baggage, Victualling, Ordnance, Barrack, Commissariate, Naval and Military Stores of all kinds, Convicts and Stores to New South Wales and a variety of miscellaneous services such as the provision of Stores and a great variety of Articles for the Military Department in Canada and many Articles of Stores for the Cape of Good Hope and other Stations?.

      There were resident Agents of the Board at domestic ports and at foreign ports frequented by transports. There were also agents afloat who travelled with the transports.

    • De geschiedenis van de middellandse zee
      The Great Sea: A Human History of the Mediterranean

      De Middellandse Zee "verliest" haar water

      Het klimaat in de Middellandse regio is zeer warm en aangenaam, en biedt vooral warme en droge zomers aan. Deze omstandigheden zorgen voor de verdamping van een belangrijke hoeveelheid water. Zo verliest de Middellandse Zee elk jaar ongeveer één meter diepte!

      Het verdampte water laat wel al zijn zout achter in het overblijvende water. Het water van de Middellandse Zee bevat veel meer zout dan het water van de Atlantische Oceaan (36 tot 38 gram per liter in de Middellandse Zee tegenover 34,9 gram per liter in de Atlantische Oceaan).

      Dit "verlies" aan water wordt gecompenseerd door de aanvoer van ander water.

      Een klein deel is afkomstig van de regen en de rivieren (1200 km3 per jaar);
      Een zeer klein deel is afkomstig van de Zwarte Zee (200 km3 per jaar)
      Het grootste deel is afkomstig van de Atlantische Oceaan, en wordt aangevoerd via de Straat van Gibraltar (35 000 km3 per jaar)

      Wetenschappers hebben uitgerekend dat de Middellandse Zee ongeveer 100 jaar nodig heeft om haar hele waterreservoir te vernieuwen (door verdamping en aanvoer van water via de Straat van Gibraltar).

      De Straat van Gibraltar is niet echt breed (ongeveer 14 km op het smalste punt) en niet echt diep (ongeveer 300 meter). Daarom is de stroming, die van de Atlantische Oceaan naar de Middellandse Zee loopt, er redelijk sterk.

      Zeilschepen hebben zelfs moeite de midellandse zee te verlaten

      Schepen als de Tartar varen met een max snelheid van hoogstens 10 Knots (10 nautische zeemeilen/uur= ca 18,5 km/uur)

      De afstand tussen Bastia en Gibraltar is ca 1700 km

      Bij gunstige stroming en wind ca 5 dagen varen

    Born:
    • For his certification as a Lieutenant 0n 2 aug 1793 his birthday was given as 22 Febr 1772.
      This birth date alleged on Gardiner's naval passing certificate does not have to be believed.
      There is long since evidence of young dogs of war falsifying their birth records from 1793 onwards to make sure of their share of the action-he was not alone in this and the authorities evidently winked at it.
