A simpler version of the Great Cabin, usually dressed for corporate meetings, now dressed as it would have been at the time of the Battle of Trafalgar, including authentic colours.
Hardy has been at sea since 1803 so he is busy replenishing the ship; buying crockery etc,. Everything he buys, he buys himself.
The cabin is painted blue, unlikely to have been his own personal choice, rather that it looks like it was used throughout the Officer’s spaces across the fleet. There’s a writing desk here, along with packing cases; it’s a working, functional environment.
Hardy is the Captain in charge of one ship; below him in the Great Cabin is the Admiral, in charge of 27 ships of the fleet.
