Hms lord warden

Hi. I'm Bob Foran in Connecticut USA. My wife's great grandfather was a midshipman on the HMS Lord Warden based at Malta about 1867-1870. I would love to learn about it's history, crew and voyages. I can also share some of his (humerous) memories about his tour of duty. Thanks.

Search here: http://discovery.nationalarchives.go...dvanced-search Use 'ADM' for the reference. You'll find quite a lot, but none is downloadable. It means a personal visit or pay for a researcher...
