I have a note (taken from one or other collection of naval biographies) to the effect that Commander Eaton Stannard Travers was transferred to the Rose from the Scylla on 23 July 1828. Apparently the Rose was then being fitted out for the Halifax station.

Where is Arthur Rexford in this list? He was Master of the “Sloop Rose”
