A Sailor''s Woolie of The Royal Navy Ship H.M.S. Emerald in a Gale off Newfoundland, Circa 1861. The woolie depicts two images of a ship, one sailing on the high seas and rthe main image of a ship in a strong gale. ;A label on the reverse in ink reads HMS Emerald in a gale of wind off the banks of Newfoundland. In october 1861 HMS Emerald encountered severe gales by the Newfoundland banks when transporting Armstrong guns and associated stores to Halifax for the ships of the North America and West India squadron. A pen and ink drawing - which shows the ship with the mizzen topgallant yard sent down, fore and main spencers set, while the main topsail has blown out its boltropes, and the same fate seems to be overtaking the fore topsail and brailed up foresail - was found in an antique shop on the Island of Nantucket, Massachusetts in 2001. It is signed "Drawn by J. Tucker H.M.S. Emerald" (John Tucker''s career).
