Notes on Action

A group of French ships belonging to Ganteaume, were sighted at 9 P.M. on January 27th, off Cape Finisterre, by the Concorde, 36, Captain Robert Barton. The Bravoure proceeded in chase of the British frigate, which, when about six miles from the French squadron, hove to, and awaited the enemy. The action which resulted was indecisive, but would probably have been otherwise but for the proximity of the French ships to windward. The Concorde lost 4 killed and 19 (one mortally) wounded, and the Bravoure, 10 killed and 24 wounded. The latter rejoined her friends, and, proceeding with them, found Ganteaume, off Cape Spartel, on January 30th.
