DescriptionTRN5 On August 18th 1813, an attack was made upon the batteries of Cassis, between Marseilles and Toulon, by the Undaunted, 38, Captain Thomas Ussher, Redwing, 18, Commander Sir John Gordon Sinclair, Bart., and Kite, 16, Commander the Hon. Robert Cavendish Spencer, with the boats of those vessels, and some from the Caledonia, 110, flagship of Vice-Admiral Sir Edward Pellew, Captain Jeremiah Coghlan, Hibernia, 110, flagship of Vice-Admiral Sir William Sidney Smith, Captain Charles Thurlow Smith, Barfleur, 98, Captain Sir Edward Berry, Bart., and Prince of Wales, 98, Captain John Erskine Douglas. The Undaunted was unable to reach her designed position, but the Eedwing and Kite took up an excellent covering station. The Marines, led by Captain Coghlan, stormed the citadel battery, and drove the French to the heights behind the town, whereupon a division of boats, under Sir John Sinclair, pulled within the mole, and captured or destroyed three gunboats and twenty-five sail of merchantmen. The cost was somewhat serious, amounting, as it did, to 4 killed and 16, including Lieutenant Aaron Tozer, wounded. Among those specially mentioned in Ussher's despatch were Lieutenants Joseph Robert Hownani and Joseph Grimshaw, Captains (R.M.) Thomas Sherman and Thomas Hussey, and Lieutenants (R.M) Harry Hunt", first in the battery, Robert Turtliff Dyer, William Blucke, John Maule, Thomas Reeves, Alexander Jervis, Edward Mallard, and Samuel Burden Ellis.
