Animals of all kinds were often carried on ships, until they were finally banned in the 1970s due to fear of rabies. The most popular animals to accompany sailors were dogs and cats, but livestock was also carried on board 18th and 19th century ships as a source of fresh food.
This entertaining and fascinating book is based on unique photographic archives held at Greenwich. It paints an eye-opening, and often humorous picture and offers a testament to sailors' affection and regard for their four and two-legged animal companions.
