The British Army in the Crimean War

La guerra di Crimea causò, alla lontana Australia, l’interruzione delle comunicazioni postali con l’Inghilterra. Storia postale, tariffe, l’elenco delle unità della Royal Navy che presero parte alla spedizione nel Mar Nero. Di Alessandro Arseni.

The Crimean War had a major impact on services as the demand for troopships it generated diverted steamship resources from the Australian route to the Mediterranean. Just when news from Europe was most eagerly wanted by colonial Australians, the system of mail steamships which promised the long sought for regularity in its flow was withdrawn, replaced for a period by unpredictable sailing packets.
