DescriptionTRN6 On June 20th fifteen gunboats attacked the Junon, 38, Captain James Sanders, while she lay becalmed in Hampton road. The gunboats anchored while still at a very long range, and promptly drifted round, so that they could not shoot. They then got under way, and gradually drew nearer the Junon. A long-range cannonade followed, in which the Junon was very slightly injured, and the gunboats suffered not at all; but as soon as a slight breeze sprung up, the Barrosa, 36, Captain William Henry Shirreff, approached, and promptly drove off the flotilla; for as soon as they felt the effects of the breeze the gunboats became useless, and could only retire. The only loss they suffered was one man killed and two wounded, from the Barrosa 's fire.
