HMS Barham in rough seas with lightning stikes behind. Lithographed by James Kennett Wilson after the famous Maltese artist Charles Frederick de Brocktorff (1775-1850). Barham was launched in 1811 as a 74-gun third rate ship of the line. However, after nearly being wrecked near Bonaire in the Antilles in 1829, she was rescued and restored with only 50 guns. She was broken up in 1839.
