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.

Half Price! - £300.00
 So often overshadowed by its own achievements as a ground attack aircraft, Hawkers mighty Typhoon also proved itself a formidable adversary in air to air combat as demonstrated by the successes of F/Lt (later Wing Commander) J R Baldwin who claimed no fewer than three Bf.109G4s in the skies above Kent on 20th January 1943 in a single sortie. Baldwin finished the war as the highest-scoring Typhoon pilot of all with 15 confirmed victories, one shared, one probable and four damaged. He was tragically lost over Korea in 1952 whilst on an exchange posting with the USAF, but is depicted here at the peak of his powers, flying Typhoon 1B DN360 (PR-A) of 609 Sqn.
