    Thanks for pointing out the error. The missing link is the more detailed and interesting one. Here it is:

    I have since found another reference dealing with changes to the BOT exams. The story must be read with some caution as  Blackburne lived in NZ and  it is a an NZ newspaper. I would like to find a copy of the British  report  "Departmental Committee on examinations of masters and mates of the mercantile marine."

    What are the three standard works allowed into the examination rooms - Norie, Burdwood, Burtons????

    A while ago while browsing the forum archives I came across a question about one of Blackburne's volumes. I cannot remember the question or the thread. The NZ National Library has an extensive set of Blackburne volumes (all?) so if the question is repeated I may be able to research it.
