Default Captains and their Ships

Are there any records of Austro-Hungarian ships and their captains around the 1850's?

If not for Corvette or Frigate class ships than at least for Battleships possibly.

i'm actually looking for information that is a few years before that to be relevant to my search, but it's a pretty remarkable list.

exactly what i was looking for, only later than needed unfortunately.

can i ask how you came across it? is there a resource i may be able to run through myself to seek some more specific data?

i picked up "Rakouske Valecne Namornictvo 1848-1866" but it does not seem to be quite as complete as i had hoped.

i am attempting to narrow the search to captains of battleships in the 1855-1865 era but some sources cite the earliest mention of this category being Habsburg class pre-dreadnaught ships in 1900 while others designate Drache Class ships encompassed within this classification as early as the 1860's.

possibly because much interest is focused/documented on the Austro-Hungarian Empire (k.u.k.) which only came about in 1867?

The information came from a 1902 publication"Four Modern Naval Campaigns" by Sir William Laird Clowes.

Sorry I can't be of more help!

About the only one that comes to mind is the screw frigate NOVARA 53 which made a world cruise under the command of Bernard von Wullerstorff-Urbair between 1857 and 1859.

 Spitfire of 610 Squadron which has been damaged during combat during the height of the Battle of Britain is shown over the white cliffs of Dover.  No. 610 (County of Chester) Squadron of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force's first major combat with the Luftwaffe was on 27th May when a Heinkel bomber protected by about 40 Me110s, was engaged.  The combat which followed saw the Heinkel and three Me110 fighters being shot down.  Throughout August 610 Squadron was involved in bitter fighting over the Channel and Home Counties of England.  During the Battle of Britain No.610 Squadron operated from Biggin Hill, Hawkinge, and, on one occasion, from Croydon.  The Squadron put up a terrific show and 40 enemy aircraft were confirmed as having been destroyed by 610 Squadron during August.  The loss to the Squadron was eleven pilots killed during the battle.

 In one of the finest portrayals of the Avro Lancaster, Moonlight Run depicts the aircraft of Fl. Lt. Mickey Martin (ED909 AJ-P) at the moment of release of the Wallace Bomb during the Dams raid on the Ruhr in 1943. With only the gentlest of moonlight rippling over the dark water of the Mohne, this dramatic picture plays homage to the impossible low altitudes and high speeds that were necessary to complete successfully their heroic mission. A stark and refreshing treatment of a subject at the hearts of all aviation historians.
