This is a Crimean-related question, but I'm told this is where the ship experts hang out so I hope it's appropriate to post it here.
I'm trying to decipher the names of three ships that appear in the Digest of the 34th Regiment, all of which playecd a part in bringing reinforcements to the Crimea during November and December 1854. These appear to be a sailing ship called something like 'Gomelga', a steam transport called 'Sidney', and another called either 'Beaudor' or 'Brandor', but I cannot find records of any of these ships and am afraid I may have transcribed them wrong.
Here's a picture of the extract with the names boxed in red, in case they might be recognized by anyone here. I apologize for the quality of the photograph - it was taken in the museum, ie in low light with no flash.
If anyone has either come across any of these ships or can suggest alternative names I would be extremely grateful. Failing that, could anyone direct me to a good source of ships used in the Crimean theatre so I can try and find out for myself? I have found this site - http://www.pdavis.nl/MidVicShips.php?page=1 - useful in the past, but it doesn't list anything like the names here.
Many thanks in advance for your help.
