Antelope vs Le Moras

3rd November 1757
Fought at : English Channel - British Isles
Part of : Seven Years' War (1756/05/17 - 1763/02/10)
Previous action : Unicorn vs Hermione 2.11.1757
Next action : Action of 23 November 1757 23.11.1757

The Antelope, of 50 guns, Captain Thomas Saumarez, while cruizing in the Channel, captured the French privateer Moras, of 22 guns and 285 men; but owing to the heavy sea running, the Antelope was unable to open her lower deck ports, and the privateer engaged nearly two hours before surrendering, nor did she then strike until she had lost her mizen-mast.
