Notes on Action

Sir Archibald Campbell began a movement up the river upon a place called Panlang. The expedition, which was entrusted to Brig.-General Hugh Fraser and Commander Chads, returned to Rangoon on the 27th, having defeated the enemy, taken several stockades, and captured a number of guns. The transport Satellite, the steamer Diana, all the boats of the Arachne and Sophie, and many small craft, co-operated in these proceedings; and Fraser's dispatch made special mention of Chads, Lieutenants Charles Keele, and John Bazely, and Messrs. Stephen Joshua Lett, and George Winsor, R.N. The little steamer rendered great assistance.
