DescriptionTRN5 On June 27th, the Guadeloupe, 16, Commander Joseph Swabey Tetley, being off Cape de Creus on the north-east coast of Spain, chased two strange sail, which proved to be the Tactique, 18, and Guepe, 8. At about 12.40 P.M. a spirited action opened; and, fifty minutes later, the Tactique made an ineffectual and costly attempt to board. Soon afterwards, two batteries near the town of St. Andre began to annoy the Guadeloupe; but close action was continued until 2.15 P.M., when both Frenchmen, having had enough of it, bore up and stood in-shore for protection. The British sloop had 1 killed and 10 severely wounded, and was much cut about aloft. It is alleged that the Tactique had no fewer than 11 killed and 48 wounded.
