Saumarez's actions off Algeciras and Gibraltar. On July 12th 1801 aboard Caesar, Admiral Sir James Saumarez led the last attack against the French Admiral Linois. This being the second stage of the battle meant that the extensive damage that the British had received during the first stage allowed for the French and Spanish ships to escape to Cadiz.
