Thanks, both links were a satisfying to read and very informative and interesting. However, I do not quite agree with her definition of a ship's "Purser", god knows where that definition came from in my opinion. I can recall during the voyages I made to and from Europe in the 1950's in the military service we were paid by the ships Purser dept., here are two link on that topic:
Purser - Google Search
Also it occurred to me that Robert in accord with the Wikipedia historical definition may actually have been a "Warrent Officer" Rank and due to being Purser and in "Command" of the ship while ported and the crew and ships Officiers were on land leave, it may have been natural for Patrick to reference him as "Commander" of the ship which he operationally would have been as having "Warrent of Authority" of Command as such.
Hmmm, lots to look into in your nice lovely links Daniel

Subject: Theos-World Robert Bowen Mystery - "The Secret Doctrine and its study" pamphlet, etc.
I am happy to announce the publication on our website of the following article titled:
"Robert Bowen mystery: 'The Secret Doctrine
and Its Study' Pamphlet by Robert Bowen"
by Yvonne Burgess
This article deals with the Bowen pamphlet which can be found online at:
ALSO Yvonne Burgess is working on a booklet titled "Oneness and the Monad." This booklet of about 80 pages will be published probably sometime in June 2009 by the Theosophical Society in England (London).
More than half of the booklet will consist of quotes on the subject by HPB or those she approved of, the remaining pages being Yvonne's comments and suggestions or open queries. She gathered these quotes from a wide range of HPB's writings and has categorised them.
When this booklet is actually published, I will try to announce it in this forum.
