Thomas Harman, preserved his convoy from being captured by eight large Dutch privateers, which he engaged and beat off, a painting of which is in Greenwich hospital. Displayed great bravery in an action with a Dutch frigate off Cadiz in 1674. This brave man lost his life in the year 1677, from a wound he received when Captain of the Sapphire, in action with a large Algerian man of war.
