Footnotes

  • As a Lieutenant, early in 1797, Mackworth-Praed took command of HMS Crash, the 12-gun Acute-class gun-brig. In May 1798, under his command, HMS Crash participated in operations overseen by Sir Home Popham against the locks and sluice gates of the Bruges canal and later served against the French and Dutch during the Napoleonic wars (1803-1815).
