Brueys, under heavy fire from HMS Majestic of the British Fleet, in the command of Admiral Horatio Nelson, during the Battle of the Nile on August 1st 1798.

A large French convoy sailed from Toulon to Alexandria under the command of General Napoleon Bonaparte who sought to invade Egypt as the first step in a campaign against British India, in an effort to drive Britain out of the French Revolutionary Wars. In the battle, the British forces, under the command of Rear-Admiral Sir Horatio Nelson (later Lord Nelson), defeated the French. A description of the action is inscribed in French beneath the image.

The British West Africa Squadron was established in 1808. Its primary role being to suppress any activity by British slavers. It was also assigned for other activities. The squadron was to be ready for combat at sea, to blockade ports between Cape Verde and Benguela if necessary, to seize foreign slavers, and to protect legitimate traders. The Journal du Havre publishes the following report on the capture of the Gabriel, communicated by Captain Blay, of the Jeune Pauline, just arrived at Havre from Rio Janeiro:- ' The following was published in Edinburgh Oct/Nov, 1841. The English brig Acorn having, in lat. 5.N perceived at great distance a vessel pillaging another, made chase, and instantly the Gabriel hoisted all her sail, and endeavoured to escape. At three in the afternoon the Acorn fired, and the Gabriel returned the fire, at the same time hoisting Portuguese colours. The chase continued for 12 hours, during the whole of which time firing was kept up by both vessels, but eventually the Gabriel was dismasted, and captured.She was sent to St Helena, but her crew, consisting of fifty- eight men, Spaniards and others, were put on board an English vessel at Rio. The captain jumped overboard during the chase, with all his papers.The merchandise found on board the Gabriel was valued at 8000 pounds. The Acorn had not time to ascertain to what country the vessel which was being pillaged by the Gabriel belonged, but she carried English colours. Captain Blay also reports that the English merchants resident at Rio have presented Captain Lecosannet, of the Roland, with a handsome gold chronometer and snuff box, and given to each of his crew a hundred francs, in testimony of the sense entertained of their humanity in saving the crew and passengers of the India.

The Great Siege of Gibraltar was an unsuccessful attempt by Spain and France to capture Gibraltar from the British during the American War of Independence. It was the longest siege endured by the British Armed Forces. In November 1781 the British garrison filed silently out of the defence works and made a surprise sortie. They routed the whole body of the besieging infantry in the trenches, set their batteries on fire, blew up and spiked their cannon, destroyed their entrenchments, and killed or took prisoner a large number of the Spaniards.

The Battle of the Nile (also known as the Battle of Aboukir Bay), fought between the British and French navies on the Mediterranean Coast off Egypt from 1-3 August 1798, which resulted in a decisive victory for the British under the command of Lord Nelson. This print shows the decisive moment when the French flagship 'Orient' (in the centre of the image) caught fire. The British, observing this, directed their cannon fire into the blaze, spreading the flames and preventing French efforts to extinguish the fire. The other ships seen here, both French and British, then moved away from the 'Orient' in anticipation of the huge explosion which took place once the fire reached the ship's magazines.
