Notes on Action

On the night of July 30th another creditable service was performed. The Procris, 18, Commander Robert Maunsell, anchored near the mouth of the Indramayo, and there discovered six gunboats, each mounting a couple of guns and having about sixty men on board. Under their charge were about fifty proas. On the 31st, after endeavouring in vain to get within effective gunshot of the enemy, Maunsell sent in his boats under Lieutenant George Majoribanks. These boarded and carried five of the gunboats, and would have taken the sixth had she not blown up. The success, which was effected with the loss of but eleven wounded on the British side, was shared in by some officers and men of the 14th and 89th regiments.
