Slade was present at the Battle of Navarino, and from 1828 to 1831 travelled extensively on both sides of the Bosphorus. He reached Constantinople in 1829 where he became friendly with Capitan Pasha, head of the Turkish Navy, who invited him on a tour of the Black Sea. Turkey was then at war with Russia and 'Slade's record of his experiences and his comments on the campaign are very interesting.' - Blackmer.
