Footnotes

  • HMS Foudroyant was launched at Plymouth in 1798 and had originally been selected by Horatio Nelson whilst on the stocks to be his flagship in 1797. Unfortunately she was not ready in time and therefore narrowly missed being the fleet flagship at the Battle of the Nile. In June 1799 at Palermo, Nelson transferred his flag from HMS Vanguard to Foudroyant and she remained his flagship until his return to England in 1800.
    After a refit, she became the flagship of Lord Keith and was present at the capitulation of the French at Alexandria in 1801.
