From WikiPOBia

Jump to: navigation, search




My name is Bruce Pilcher. I am an avid fan of Patrick O'Brian's historical novels. I am interesting in participating in creating definations in the WikiPOBia. I have some naval experience and am quite interested in nautical language and expressions.

I am currently reading Far Side of the World so I am actively avoiding any parts of the WikiPOBia that contain spoilers.

I have some trouble with written English. I usually do most of my editing with a word processor so I can use the spell check feature. However, for short notes - like this one - I don't necessarily use the word processor. Also due to my print impairment, I may not notice if I have misspelt a word into another correctly spelled word. And of course the spell checker won't find that error for me. So anyway please correct any spelling mistakes you find in my work. Thank you very much in advance.
