Mr Midshipman Hornblower

This is a success story of Hornblower who is 17 years old midshipman. He was getting a raise to overcome many difficulties
There are four stories in this book. The 4th story is the best for me. He is bravery, genial and honesty. He saved three survivors from the Spanish privateer on the rocks and returned to Spanish prison to fulfill a promise for his parole.

It seems that there was a TV series for Hornblower in the UK. If you want to know more details, please click here.

After reading :3. Put these words from the story into four groups under these headings. There are four words which don’t quite fit into any group. Which are they?
- TYPE OF SHIP:  cargo, cutter, frigate, privateer,
- PARTS OF A SHIP:  cabin, deck, galley, mast,
- TEPES OF WEAPONS:  cannon, cutlass, pistol, whip,
- SHIP’S OFFICERS:  admiral, lieutenant, midshipman,
- DON’T FIT:  crew, duel, fleet, hold,
