The Voyage of the Blonde
By Reginald John Malden
The son of a prosperous surgeon, in Putney, Charles Robert Malden was educated locally and, at the age of 11 encouraged, against his will, to join the Royal Navy. He saw service in the Mediterranean, Indian Ocean, and America, becoming a skilled surveyor and promoted Lieutenant. In 1824 he joined HMS Blonde under Lord Byron as Navigating Officer and Surveyor on the voyage to the Sandwich Islands to return the bodies of the King and Queen who had died from measles during their visit to England. On the return voyage an Island was discovered which was named Malden in his honour. The Island was subsequently used for the mining of guano for the fertilizer trade, and in the mid 20th century used as a testing site for Britain’s nuclear weapons.
This book is written by Charles Malden's great, great grandson, Reginald John Malden.
