DescriptionTRN5 In October, the Flibustier, 16, with stores and a few troops on board, lay in St. Jean de Luz, awaiting an opportunity to put to sea. The near approach of Wellington's army obliged her to move; and, on the night of the 12th, she weighed and stood to the S.W. At dawn on the 13th, being then becalmed near the mouth of the Bayonne river, she was seen by the Telegraph, 12, Commander Timothy Scriven, Challenger, 18, Commander Frederick Edward Venables Vernon, and Constant, 12, Lieutenant John Stokes. Before the Telegraph could close, the Flibustier had anchored under some batteries, but at 6.45 P.M. the British vessel began to rake the Frenchman. At about 7, seeing that the other British vessels were approaching, the Flibustier set herself on fire, and, in spite of efforts made to save her, blew up at 8.10. The Telegraph had no casualties.
