Excerpt from Memorandum: Rear-Admiral Sir John C. Dalrymple Hay's Compulsory Retirement From the British Navy Sir john hay has received so many letters on the subject of his retirement from the Navy, and has seen in the press so many inaccurate statements thereon, that he thinks it right to draw up the following Memorandum. Sir John Hay entered the Navy in 1835, and served continuously to 1850. He then studied at the Royal Naval College, and in 1853 was appointed to be Flag Captain at Portsmouth. The Russian war having broken out, he served in the Black Sea till the peace, and then continuously in the Mediterranean and on the North American and West Indian Station till the end of 1859. He had thus served on every station of the British Navy, and in every war, except the Indian Mutiny, in which it had been employed during the time that had elapsed from his entry into the service.
