DescriptionTRN5 On June 19th, the Lugum was sighted by the Seagull, 16, Commander Robert Cathcart, off the Naze of Norway. The Seagull at once attempted to close her, using sweeps as the wind fell to a calm, whilst the Lugum maintained a steady fire at a range at which the Seagull's fourteen 24-pr. carronades were ineffective. In short, this action, like the last, serves to demonstrate the tactical weakness of short range large calibre guns against a speedy and intelligent enemy. When the Seagull at last succeeded in closing her adversary, she found herself trapped. Six Danish gunboats, each carrying two long 24-prs., appeared from amongst the islands, and took up a raking position on her quarters. Against such odds the Seagull was helpless; and she struck after two and a half hours' gallant resistance, with 8 killed (including Lieutenant Abraham Harcourt White and Master Andrew Martin), and 20 wounded, out of a crew of 94. She sank as soon as the crew and the wounded had been transferred to the captor. The Lugum had 14 killed or wounded. Cathcart was subsequently posted, as from the day of the action.
