It came and I checked, and yes, it is indeed Q's mug from Skyfall. YAY

(To those who are just shopping for a mug, just to point out that it is a very well made mug, and quite light too, definitely worth the purchase. The product came to my house with no flaws whatsoever.)

There are tons of books out there about 1750 - 1850 fashion. There are tons of books out there about Royal Navy. But to find information on the tiny intersected subset of these two fields... rarest of rare.

I was overjoyed to find this book, because my previous resources about Age of Sail Royal Navy uniforms were only from movies and paintings. There are so much more detailed resources in this book, both in words, pictures, photographs and patterns. You can find uniforms from all ranks -- from Captain to Lieutenant... even a Naval Surgeon's dress uniform!

Definitely for all Age of Sail fans, no matter experts or amateurs.

It is also a whirlpool of so many other political interests and manipulation.
I found Paul Bettany's performance brilliant (no matter what history says Lord Melbourne's age REALLY was lol). Wonderfully charming at times, unbreakably calm at others. He may have came to the young queen with ambition in mind at… Read more
