The Battle of the Nile (or 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.

Coat of arms of Sir Thomas Cochrane (1775-1860) as 10th Earl of Dundonald, following his installation as a Knight of the Order of the Bath in 1812. Cochrane, a naval hero whose exploits inspired both C. S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower and Patrick O'Brian's Jack Aubrey, was controversially convicted of a Stock Exchange fraud in 1814, and was ejected from the Order. After fighting for other navies around the world, Cochrane returned to the Royal Navy in 1832, eventually receiving the honorary office of Rear-Admiral. In 1847 Queen Victoria reappointed him Knight of the Order of the Bath.
