Notes on Action


DescriptionTRN5
In the morning of June 14th 1803, the Immortalite, 36, Captain Edward William Campbell Rich Owen, Cruiser, 18, Commander John Hancock, and Jalouse, 18, Commander Christopher Strachey, chased on shore under batteries near Cape Blanc Nez the French gun-vessels Inabordable, 4, and Commode, 4. When the tide permitted, the Cruiser and Jalouse stood in, and, anchoring with springs on their cables, engaged and silenced the batteries, after which the boats of the squadron boarded and brought off both vessels, losing only one person wounded.
