Admiral Lord Collingwood, the eldest son of a Newcastle merchant, went to sea in 1761 at the age of thirteen. In his nearly fifty years in the Navy he rose to become a fine seaman, a master of gunnery, a battle commander the equal of his friend - and rival in love - Nelson. Collingwood's service took him to Boston, where he fought during the American War of Independence and to Antigua, where he and Nelson both fell in love with Mary Moutray. It took him to Corsic, Sicil, and Menorca, where he began as a young midshipman and ended his career as the effective viceroy of the Mediterranean.
