Can you confirm this was the ship which left Brest on 16 February 1688 and arrived at the bar of Siam on 15 August 1688. The ship's captain was Msr. de l' Estrille. The ship left there on 13 November for Pondicherry where it arrived early February 1689. From Pondicherry it made a voyage to Phuket (Junk Ceylon) and returned there in Jan 1690. From Pondicherry the Oriflamme was recalled to France and sunk off the coast of Brittany in February 1691.

Nominal guns 50 - lower deck 22 French 18-Pounders. Any idea about the type of the remaining 28 guns?
