Admiral John Forbes (1714-1796)
A half-length portrait slightly to left, in flag officer's undress uniform, circa 1774-1783. He wears a white wig. He supported Mathews during and after the Battle of Toulon 1744. He served as a member of the Admiralty Board in 1757 and was the only one who would not ratify the sentence of death of Byng. He became General of the Marines and followed Hawke as the Admiral of the Fleet in 1781 but was prevented by ill-health from taking any active part in affairs.
