He was transferred to HMS Euryalus, Under Hon H Blackwood, in the day/days after Trafalgar, following his father's death on HMS Mars. This was confirmed by 1st Lt. William Hennen's letter to Mrs Duff, the widow of the late captain who fell on HMS Mars that day. He uses the words 'Poor Norwich , Captain Blackwood hastaken on board the Euryalus'.
