Notes on Ship



On the 11th November 1806, a Court Martial was held on Lieutenant Henry Osborne, of His Majesty's ship Uranie, for absenting himself from his duty without leave, for conducting himself in a cruel and oppressive manner, unbecoming the character of an officer, and for contemptuous and menacing behaviour to Captain Larocne, * the quarter-deck, before the ship's company. The charges were in part proved, and in consideration of particular circumstances, he was dismissed from His Majesty's ship Uranie.

Rear- Admiral Murray, President.
