In his petition to the Privy Council which led to him receiving a pension for wounds received, he states 'that in the action with the French Fleet on the 23rd of June last, he was most dangerously wounded, his right arm being broke in two places, and otherwise so bruised as to deprive him of ever having the right use of it, and that his right breast was also so materially hurt as to affect his lungs and injure his health to a great degree'.

Privy Council Register PC2/145 Meeting of 13 January 1796
