1670/07 The Advice and the Basing fought 7 Algerian warships and beat them off from a convoy, but both captains were killed.
The London Gazette
Publication date:11 August 1670
London Aug. 14 - Letters of July 21 on board the Advice before Cartagena, confirm to us the engagement of that Frigate and the Guernsey, to the Westward of Cape de Gaes, with seven Turks men of war, whereof the Admiral carried 56 guns, the Vice Admiral the like number, the Rear Admiral a new ship of 60 guns, and none of the other less than 40 guns, telling us that Captain Young and Allingson, were the first men that were killed on either ship in the first days engagement, which notwithstanding the two frigates so well defended themselves, that the enemies Vice Admiral, was forced to bring herself upon the Careen, and might have been sunk had not the frigates tacked about to preserve their convoys. The next morning they mad several prossers to come up again but did not ? between twelve and one of the clock, but then evidently demonstrated their dislike of the former days entertainment, taking car not to come near, fighting only with their great guns, so that their small shot did no execution, which fight they continued till about six of the clock in the evening, and then stood off to sea, leaving the frigates with their convoys very safe to pursue their course, and were the next morning out off sight.
In this fight the frigate Advice had seven men beside the Captain killed, and 15 or 16 wounded; the Guernsey had none killed besides the Captain and 3 or 4 wounded.
