A third-rate entering Port Mahon
A third-rate, two-decker, 74-gun warship is shown flying the red ensign and private pennant on the left of the picture, in the entrance to Port Mahon harbour. A ship of this size could have been used for lying in line of battle, as an independent cruiser or the flagship of a small squadron. This one is in fact hove-to and making little way, to drop a boat which is conveying two naval officers to the quayside on the right. The boat, also flying the red ensign, has a smartly uniformed crew which suggests it is taking the captain ashore.
