Description of the ActionTRN5 That evening the Cerere, Fama, and twenty gunboats made a fresh attempt to get from Pozzuoli Bay to Naples, but were at once assailed by the Cyane. Drawing ahead of the Espoir and the British gunboats, and using her sweeps, she closed with the Cerere, and fought her till all her powder was exhausted, when she drew off in a disabled condition with 2 killed and 20 (including the gallant Staines and Lieutenants James Hall and John Ferrier) wounded. The Cerere is said to have lowered her flag, but, on receiving a reinforcement of men from Naples, to have hoisted it again. Her losses were about 50 killed or wounded. The Fama gave no help to her consort.
