HMS Wolverine was a collier that was converted into a warship, with an experimental system in which her guns could be pivoted to be fired from either side. In this action she engaged the French luggers Furet and Rusé, the crews of which attempted to board Wolverine, as depicted here, but were beaten back. The French then threw incendiary devices though Wolverine's stern cabin windows and escaped while the British were extinguishing the fire. Commander Morlock was mortally wounded, but lasted until the ship returned to Portsmouth; every captain in the port attended his funeral two days later.
