Edward Augustus Inglefield - Later Life

Later Life

Soon after his return from the Arctic, Inglefield was sent to join the Crimean War in the Black Sea as captain of HMS Firebrand, where he took part in the siege of Sevastopol. After the Crimean War, he captained a number of ships and continued to rise through the ranks. In 1869 he was made a Rear Admiral and three years later was appointed Superintendent of the Royal Naval dockyard in Malta. Promotions to Vice Admiral and then Admiral followed, between which he was knighted. In 1878 he was appointed Commander-in-Chief, North America and West Indies Station.

Inglefield retired in 1885. Thereafter he devoted much of his time to painting and his watercolours of Arctic landscapes were exhibited at several art galleries in London. He died, aged seventy-four, in 1894, and is buried in Kensal Green Cemetery.

Famous quotes containing the word life:

    Truth is the kind of error without which a certain species of life could not live. The value for life is ultimately decisive.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Sometimes it just takes stronger eyeglasses to cure those who are in love—and someone with the ability to imagine a face or a figure twenty years older might perhaps pass through life quite undisturbed.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
