Temeraire at Barbados 1801
Date Posted: 10/09/2011
John Pitt from Eastbourne has kindly got in touch with an excellent discovery. Whilst trying to trace a RN ancestor John came across a sketchbook which includes a number of fascinating images, including one of the Temeraire at anchor in Barbados, 1801. She is shown with a bold yellow stripe and uncluttered bow, which confirms much of what we suspected about her appearance. The sketchbook also includes images of the Diamond Rock and HMS Implacable. A great find, thanks John.
