New Braunfels Navy veteran Carl Lav in submitted his memories of
• working aboard “Old Ironsides.”
“I remember when “Old Iron t Sides” came to Corpus Christi,
• Texas, in the early 1930s. Our Sea •f Scouts, of the ship (Afoofa) went to J Corpus to help visitors who came J aboard. Our main adult leader was \ Capt Keith Gordon, retired British
Commander of the Royal Navy.
“One of the first things Capt. Ciordon called to our attention as we approached the ship. was the “rigging’ lines were right stranded lines (ropes to landlubbers), instead of left stranded lines as on the ; original ship.
“The ship was to have been sailed ' down the coast to Corpus, but we were told not enough sailors familiar with square riggers were available so it was towed.
“Capt. Gordon was a very interesting person. He had built a model of Old Ironsides, making guns that would actually tire small pellets, etc. He gave the model to the museum in Brackenridge Park for a *. temporary display, but later took it and sent it to England, saying the
public did not appreciate it.
“He told us tales of when he sailed the seas and the British Hag was respected, all they had to tell a Slave Runner or Pirate Ship ‘To surrender in the king's name,' and they would do so. All this was quite a wonderful experience fot us young teen-agers.
Reading about “Old Ironsides" in the San Antonio paper recently brought these memories back to mind.”
