DescriptionTRN5 On August 1st 1808, the boats of the Kent, 74, Captain Thomas Rogers, and Wizard, 16, Commander William Ferris, were despatched to cut out ten coasters lying close to the Italian town of Noli. The boats, under Lieutenants William Cashman, and Alexander Bisset, reached the coasters, but found them firmly secured to the beach, whereupon they rowed in under a heavy fire from French troops and field-pieces, drove back the troops, and released the vessels. At the same time they captured a French gunboat. The total British loss was only 2 killed. Lieutenants James Lindsay and Fairfax Moresby, besides the officers already mentioned, greatly distinguished themselves in this affair.
