Committee to Review the Future of the Purser - 1842
15 Jan 1842
A select committee of naval officers is sitting in London, Admiral Sir Byam Martin, President, to determine on certain suggestions relative to the pursers of the Navy.
Extensive changes are said to be in contemplation by the Admiralty, as to the emoluments and designation of this class of officers.
The title of Commissary [don't believe a word of it] is likely to be substituted, and a fixed salary, instead of the present allowances.
