'The Rt. Honble George Lord Anson, Baron of Soberton, First Lord Commissioner of the Admiralty, Vice Admiral of Great Britain, Admiral of the Blue Squadron & one of his Majesty's most Honble Privy Council'. George Anson was the most experienced sailor of his age. He circumnavigated the globe in HMS 'Centurion' between 1740 and 1744. He was First Lord of the Admiralty from 1751 to 1756 and from 1757 to 1762. During this time he was largely responsible for building a more professional navy, introducing reforms to the dockyards, updating the Articles of War.
