Correction! HMS Myrmidon did NOT sail to St Helena in 1815 - despite a picture (by Thomas Shepherd dated as of 1827) depicting her arriving there in 1815 with HMS Northumberland - FAKE NEWS as someone might say. After accompanying HMS Bellerophon to Plymouth, the Myrmidon shortly afterwards went to Portsmouth for a major refitting.

Philip FitzGibbon was 2nd Lt on HMS Myrmidon in 1815 when it accompanied the Bellerophon - which had Napoleon and his entourage on board - from Rochefort to Torbay. It subsequently accompanied HMS Northumberland to St Helena, where Napoleon was deposited, and then returned to Plymouth.
