Capture of the Foudroyant | Francis Swaine | 1816
On 28 February 1758 by Monmouth, Hampton Court and Swiftsure. The Monmouth's Captain Arthur Gardiner was mortally wounded early in the fight, and his two lieutenants, led by Lt Robert Carkett, commanded the Monmouth for most of the battle. The captain of the Foudroyant, the Marquis de Quesne, insisted upon handing his sword to Lt Carkett. 190 were killed on the Foudroyant. It was then towed to Cape de Gata by HMS Swiftsure before being taken to Gibraltar for repair, where it was made sea-worthy again.
