Pickle HM Schoner Baukasten HM Schoner Pickle Caldercraft

Das Trafalgar Depeschenboot

Die Pickle wird immer mit Admiral Nelsons letzten historischen Sieg, der Schlacht von Trafalgar 1805, in Zusammenhang gebracht, als sie auserwählt wurde, die Nachricht von Lord Nelsons Sieg und Tod nach England zu überbringen. Unter dem Kommando von Lieutenant Richards Lapenotiere war die Pickle nicht direkt an der Schlacht von Trafalgar beteiligt, war aber pausenlos damit beschäftigt, Freund und Feind vor dem nassen Tod zu retten. Die Pickle ist ein exaktes maßstäbliches Modell, das nach den Originalplänen der Admiralität konstruiert wurde. Bei allen Beschlägen, Masten und der Takelage wurde in zeitgenössischen Quellen und in verfügbaren aktuellen Veröffentlichungen recherchiert.

Der Baukasten der Pickle ist wie die gesamte Nelsons Navy Serie von Calder Craft sehr gut ausgestattet. Alle Holzteile sind aus Sperr- und Edelholz CNC-genau ausgefräst. Viele Messingätzteile für Takelage und Verzierungen und sehr feine Metallgussteile lassen ein wirklich akkurates Modell entstehen. Ausführliche Baupläne und eine reichlich illustrierte Bauanleitung machen den Bau des Modells vergleichsweise einfach.

Englische Beschreibung

Forever associated with Admiral Nelsons final and most historic victory, the Battle of Trafalgar 1805, Pickle was chosen to carry the News of Nelsons victory and death back to England.
Commanded by Lieutenant John Richards Lapenotiere, Pickle was not directly involved in the Battle of Trafalgar but was permanently busy rescuing both friend and foe from a watery death. By 6pm the muster list for Pickle showed a total of 160 prisoners taken on board, the majority of these coming from the burning French Achille. Given the size of Pickle and the fact that she had a crew of just 40 it is remarkable that Lapenotiere was not only able to rescue so many but that they were then able to prevent the prisoners from taking Pickle as their own.

After the battle, with Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood now in command, every ship, including Pickle, was required to maintain the blockade of Cadiz.
Between the 22 and 25 of October, Lapenotiere continued rescuing seaman and prisoners and began offloading them to other ships, including Dreadnought, Euryalus, Revenge and Victory, all the while battling to survive the storm that was blowing in from the south west.

On the morning of the 26 October 1805, Lapenotiere was signalled to come aboard Euryalus where he received written orders from Collingwood to sail for Plymouth with the dispatches. Knowing that the bearer of dispatches would receive a promotion, it was customary to choose a favoured officer for the task and Collingwoods choice of Lapenotiere is often attributed to an act of gratitude. It is said that, while Lapenotiere was a passenger onboard a ship also conveying Lord Collingwood, an order was given on deck to the man at the wheel. Lapenotiere, realising that if the order were obeyed the ship would be on the rocks, immediately gave another order and saved the ship. Collingwood thanked Lapenotiere saying If ever I have the opportunity I will do you a service. It is also said that on receipt of his orders Collingwood reminded Lapenotiere of this promise saying Now take these dispatches to England; you will receive 500 and your commanders commission. Now I have kept my word.
Unfortunately no evidence of either of these events exists and Collingwoods choice of Lapenotiere is better explained by the fact that Pickle was probably the only ship that Collingwood could afford to spare given his current circumstance. This is also backed up by Collingwoods letter to William Marsden stating dispatches containing the account of the Action of the 21st Inst, and detailing the proceedings of the Fleet to the 24th will be delivered to you by Lieut Lapenotiere, commanding the Pickle Schooner having no means of speedier, or safer Conveyance with me at present.

At noon the same day, Lapenotiere and Pickle departed for England but his voyage was to be challenging to say the least. For the next seven days Pickle battled through stormy seas and, with her pumps blocked, the crew were reduced to forming a human chain in order to bale with buckets. On October 31st, with continuing gale force winds Lapenotiere ordered four of his 12 pounder carronades to be thrown overboard in an attempt to keep the schooner from being swallowed by the sea. November 2nd brought weather of the opposite extreme, but still no rest for the crew. With calm seas and no wind the sweeps had to be employed just to keep Pickle heading toward England.

On 4th November 1805 Pickle finally reached Falmouth were Lapenotiere landed at shore in Pickles boat. From this point Lapenotiere set off on his now famous post chaise using at least 21 changes of horses to travel more than 270 miles in 37 hours and costing 46.19s.1d, more than six months wages for a Lieutenant. Lapenotiere reached his goal of the Admiralty at around 1am on the 6th November and announced to William Marsden, First Secretary to the Admiralty, "Sir, we have gained a great victory, but we have lost Lord Nelson.
