"You threeโ€ฆ Youโ€™re so full of yourselves, and of each other." - Mr. Buckland to William






Description & Biography

Description: Bush is 5'8" tall and of average build. He has curly brown hair which he wears in a queue and has piercing blue eyes. He tends to have a rather stern demeanor, and is definitely not a man to cross when he is angry. Despite his height, he can be incredibly intimidating if the situation calls for it. While it is not unheard of to see him smile, it is nevertheless a rare occurrence. For the daily running of the ship, he wears the lieutenant's undress uniform--blue coat with white piping, white waistcoat, blue trousers, black boots.



โ€•โ€•โ€•โ€•โ€•โ€•โ€•โ€•โ€•โ€•โ€•โ€•โ€•โ€•



Biography: Bush had a mother and four sisters who lived in a cottage in Chichester and depended upon Bush for their support. His sisters "devoted all their attention to him whenever it was possible," and he was as devoted to them, giving them half of his pay each month. He was "brought up in a harsh school," and experience which taught him caution and perhaps contributed to his natural stolidity.



In July of 1796 Bush received his commission as Lieutenant while serving on the HMS Superb. Bush recalled that he relied more on "seamanship and not navigation" to pass the requisite examination. He served on board HMS Conqueror just prior to his assignment to Renown.



Aboard Renown Bush met Horatio Hornblower for the first time:

"Lieutenant William Bush came on board H.M.S. Renown as she lay at anchor in the Hamoaze and reported himself to the officer of the watch, who was a tall and rather gangling individual with hollow cheeks and a melancholy cast of countenance, whose uniform looked as if it had been put on in the dark and not readjusted since."



Although this initial meeting with his junior officer was less than impressive, Bush quickly realized that Hornblower was brilliant, yet adept at disguising his brilliance so as not to offend his superiors. Bush's first impulse was to be suspicious of both the brilliance and the evident "duplicity", but his growing respect for Hornblower overcame this impulse, and lead him to friendship and trust.



His respect and his honesty also compelled Bush to realize that although he was Hornblower's senior, Hornblower was the better leader and strategist. Making the best of this awkward situation, Bush gave Hornblower ample opportunity to make and carry out plans during their mission to Samanรก.



These plans succeeded; Bush gave Hornblower full credit in his report; and at Jamaica, Hornblower was promoted to Commander. Although it at first appeared to be a step backwards, with Hornblower suddenly Bush's superior officer, it was in fact mutually beneficial, for if Hornblower was a born leader Bush was made to support him.



Upon return to England Renown was paid off, and Bush was on half pay during a time of unemployment. Most of his money went to support his mother and sisters. Without either the influence to to gain an appointment as Lieutenant in the peace-time navy, or the experience necessary to join the merchant service, Bush had to cope with poverty. An aspect of this poverty was social in nature, as it prevented him from spending time in taverns or coffee houses where he normally would have enjoyed the company of his peers:

"In there, he knew, there would be warmth and good company. The fortunate officers with prize money to spend; the incredibly fortunate officers who had found themselves appointments in the peacetime navy - they would be in there yarning and taking wine with each other. He could not afford wine. He thought longingly for a moment about a tankard of beer."



In February 1803 a chance meeting with his friend Hornblower resolved both these issues. The renewal of their friendship cheered both men. One month later, Britain was again at war; and Hornblower, appointed Commander of the sloop of war HMS Hotspur, "diffidently" asked Bush to be his First Lieutenant.



After the Hotspur was lost on Black Rock, Bush served as a junior lieutenant aboard HMS Temeraire, a ninety-eight gun ship of the line during the Battle of Trafalgar.



In Ship of the Line he served as Hornblower's first lieutenant, and lost a foot when their ship Sutherland engaged with four French ships of the line, and were forced to strike colours. He shared Hornblower's incarceration in France, and escaped with him after obtaining a wooden leg. He was promoted to post captain, and served under Commodore Hornblower in the novel of the same name.


William after being pushed over by Horatio on their first meeting (which took place aboard HMS Renown):











"Interesting welcoming ceremony Mr. Hornblower."






Childhood & Beginning of Career at Sea

In the year of 1763, at the beginning of summer, a baby boy was born...







[Coming soon. Will write whenever I have the time. Not much is known about William's early life so I thought it fun to create a story around it myself.]




"We want burning ships, not a boiling sea!"


The job of a lieutenant explained

The rank of Lieutenant can be traced back to 1580 with the simple reason of being an understudy to the Captain in case of accident or illness, although they were not permanently established. After the restoration, Samuel Pepys introduced an examination to test the abilities of the rank and by doing so transformed their status from mere understudy to an actual job with particular duties attached. The senior lieutenant, known as the First Lieutenant and was responsible for the organisation of the ship and administration under the guidance of the Captain. This post eventually turned into the rank of Commander. He was responsible for maintaining discipline and navigation and with the junior lieutenants responsible for ensuring the crew carried out their duties. He was in charge of watches. Lieutenants received their commissions for particular ships and the position within the officer ranks. An officer was required to have at least six years service at sea before passing the examination for promotion to Lieutenant. It was possible for the officer to pass many years at this rank until the eventual distinction between Lieutenants of eight years service and the eventual establishment of the rank of Lieutenant-Commander.

PERSONALITY: Bush was characterized chiefly by his loyalty, his patience, good nature, and stolid matter-of-fact outlook. He was described as having "frank, blue eyes," a man who did not tolerate infringement on his authority, but was at the same time a generous soul with no meanness in him, though blessed with little imagination. He was sturdy, intrinsically cautious, phlegmatic in temperament, and unlike his friend Hornblower, had a cast iron stomach, and never suffered from seasickness. He was also said to be immensely strong, and of light footed quickness, a demonstration of which was described in his defense of the Renown (ship) during the prisoner revolt aboard; he suffered nine knife and sword wounds, none of which were life threatening, requiring fifty-three stitches to close, but no one managed to inflict a more serious wound.

- He tends to have little tolerance for things which interfere with the normal operation of the ship, even if it is something which poses no sort of threat.
- While he is a good leader, his strength is not in battle planning.
- Though he is not as charismatic as some officers, he still inspires loyalty among the men he commands.
- Light sleeper.
- Can't swim.
