Fawler was court-martialed for misconduct after capture of French frigate in private service Volage (although told by the crew that other ships of the raiding squadron were in the vicinity, he took no precautions, then cut the tow line when they showed up, abandoning the prize crew to capture by the French). Sentenced to me mulcted (fined) 1 year's pay.
