Notes on Action


Description of the ActionNWB
Further Action in the List Deep
The Dutch had apparently thirty-three vessels in all, including fireships and small craft; the Danes had ten warships and three fireships. As the Dutch came out Mund weighed anchor and stood out to sea, but his three fireships went aground at the entrance to the harbour and were of no further use to him. The action was a long range affair, with the wind and sea getting up steadily, until by evening all thoughts of fighting had to be abandoned. The Dutch ship Campen lost her mainmast in a squall early in the day, and at once steered for home. In the morning of May 26th Thijsen had only seventeen ship with him, and decided, in view of their damaged state and the discontent of his crews, to return to the Vlie.
