Question
Sir,
Do you know of any books available that tell of a 1st hand account of life aboard a British Warship during the 1800's.

Answer
There are a lot, try:
Master and Commander
Mutiny on the Bounty
Horatio Hornblower series
Blackwell's Paradise
A Divided Command

Anything by Dudley Pope

You can just do a search for "British Naval Fiction" on Google and find a bunch more books.

If you need any more info, just let me know.
