A view of British warships at St. Lucia, with a flag on Signal Hill on Pigeon Island (now joined to mainland by a causeway). Admiral Rodney made Pigeon Island his base, building Fort Rodney, because he could see the French navy on Martinique from Signal Hill. A month after Forrest drew this view Rodney fought the Battle of Martinique (17the April 1780). From the rare series 'Twelve Views of the Island of Saint Lucia' by Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Ramus Forrest (1750 - 1827). He was a British military officer who served in India, the West Indies, and on the staff of the Earl of Dalhousie, Governor in Chief of Canada, from 1821 to 1823. Although an accomplished amateur artist, Forrest's professional performance did not live up to Dalhousie's expectations and he was dismissed. He returned to England in 1823. His best known work is probably 'A Picturesque Tour along the Rivers Ganges and Jumna', 1824.
