«Allerton»- iron full-rigged ship

An iron full-rigged ship built in 1884 by Oswald, Mordaunt & Co., Southampton, as Yard No. 224. Dimensions 83,17×12,23×7,50 meters and 1936 tons under deck.
In 1885 the Captain J. Gyllencreutz was appointed.
In 1910 sold to owners in Valparaiso, Chile, for £ 2600 and converted into a hulk.
The design stamp is made after painting of Christopher Blossom. In the picture we see: “The year is 1897 and the iron hull rigger "Allerton" makes her way up the East River, viewed from the piers of South Street. The last of the late afternoon sun just catches her toward her berth. The crew of the "Allerton" stands by on the fo-c'sle while some bystanders watch with perhaps some professional curiosity.” "Allerton" was typical of many latter day sailing ships being squeezed out of business by the competition with steam.

Boston Navy Yard

The earliest naval shipbuilding activities in Charlestown, Massachusettsacross the Charles River and Boston harbor to the north from the city of Boston , began during the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783). The land for the Charlestown Navy Yard was purchased by the United States government in 1800 and the yard itself established shortly thereafter. The yard built the first US ship of the line , "USS Independence" , but was primarily a repair and storage facility until the 1890s, when it started to build steel ships for the "New Navy". By then, it was called the Boston Navy Yard. Forty-six ships have been constructed in the Boston Navy Yard, the first vessel launched being the sloop of war Frolic in 1813, and the latest the Whitney, a destroyer tender, launched in 1923. Additional vessels have been constructed for other governmental departments. No. 1 drydock, built of granite, completed in 1833 was the first drydock built in this country, and the first vessel to enter it was the famous frigate Constitution. The U. S. S. Constitution, or "Old Ironsides" as it is commonly referred to, was built by the act of Congress which authorized the building of six frigates in the year 1793. Work has commenced on the frigate at "Moulton's Point," former name of the navy yard, in 1794 and she was launched in 1797. This famous old ship participated in forty battles and never suffered defeat. In 1927 work of rebuilding her was undertaken at this yard. The necessary funds for the rebuilding were raised by popular subscription, in addition to an appropriation of three hundred thousand dollars authorized by Congress in 1930 to complete the work. In the late 1880s and 1890s, the Navy began expanding again bringing into service new modern steel hulled steam-powered warships and that brought new life to the Yard. The design stamp is made after painting of Christopher Blossom.

On 7 November 2012, the boat (while submerged) successfully launched a Kalibr cruise missile (anti-ship version) at a sea target in the White Sea. Later that same month the submarine successfully test fired two additional (land attack) cruise missiles. The first land attack SLCM was launched on 26 November 2012 from a surfaced position and a second two days later from a submerged position.

PHILIPPE D'AUVERGNE

Jersey issued 1989 in a second set of stamps in the adventures of Captain Philippe ‘Auvergne, of the 6 stamps have two a maritime theme, the 30p and 32p.

The 30p stamp shows Mont Orgueil where D’Auvergne had his headquarters, with most probably a gun-boat and rowboat in the foreground leaving for a mission.

By 1795 much had happened in the Revolution and Captain Philippe D’Auvergne. Not having adopted him as promised when pressed in 1791 to settle the Bouillon succession the Duke nevertheless nominated Philippe D’Auvergne, the Assembly appointed him Prince-Successor and in February 1792 King George II of England gave him permission to accept in July, however with Louis XVI’s acceptance of the National Assembly’s new Constitution a worried Europe apposed the Revolution, the Jacobins rallied France and imprisoned the King and with his execution in January 1793 France was again at war with England. D’Auvergne appointed commander of the British Naval Squadron to protect Jersey against invasion attacks French shipping and gather intelligence moves his headquarters in the castle of Mont Orgueil on the islands east coast.

Himself Captain of the old HMS NONSUCH (1774) a ship-of-the line converted to a floating battery, with an armament as a floating battery of 20 – 68 pdr. carronades and 26 – 24 pdr. guns. D’Auvergne had also the grand-sounding gunboats LION. SURPRISE, BULLDOG, TIGER, EAGLE and REPULSE in his flotilla but such was their unseaworthy condition after 10 year of peace that he got rid of all within three months. Amongst replacements were the BRAVO, PLUMPER, SEAFLOWER and armed cutters and lugers, the best known being DAPHNE, ARISTOCRAT and ROYALIST. His duties were to guard the Channel Islands, to obtain early information from France of the enemy’s hostile movements, to establish and maintain links with the insurgents in Brittany and Normandy, and to succour French refugees.
of Church lands Many of the latter were priest and laymen expelled from France because of the Assembly’s decree following the takeover by the State, that the Bishops (now cut from 135 to 83 under the Civil Constitution of the Clergy) should be elected by their dioceses and the Priest by their perishes and all taken an oath to the constitution. The majority refused, and their banishment fuelled resistance movements in the North West of France. One of the more active refugees was the young François Rene Chateaubriand, later to achieve fame as an author, who told how Monsieur de Bouillon. D’Auvergne persuaded him not to cross to Brittany to mount ineffective resistance in caves and forests but to go to England and offer himself for more influential service.


The Jersey stamp issued in 1998 of 30p stamp shows us
32p: A ships boat landing with supplies somewhere on the French coast for the Chouans rebels
1798 Sees Captain D’Auvergne in command of the Jersey Naval Station actively engaged in Jersey’s maritime defence and attacks on French shipping in the Bay of St Malo but his greatest contribution is as “spymaster” for the English, gathering vital information and landing forged assignats or currency notes, arms, ammunition and Royalist Officers to aid the counter revolutionary groups in Normandy and Brittany. With over thousand men in his Jersey command and care of thousands of French Royalists refugees and Catholic clergy expelled from France, he has a tremendous task, Having seen the failure of the Vendée insurrections and the Royalist expedition to Quiberon he concentrate his support on the many smaller, highly effective Chouans rebels insurgent activities.
