Battle of Camperdown, 11 October 1797
A pencil and wash drawing signed, ' N. Pocock', lower left and inscribed 'Camperdown' by the artist. It shows the later part of the action with De Winter's totally dismasted Dutch flagship 'Vrijheid' in the centre still exchanging broadsides with Duncan's 'Venerable', centre right. The ship on fire and missing her mizzen mast on the left is the Dutch 'Hercules'. This was as a result of action with the 'Bedford', 74, (Captain Sir Thomas Byard) which may be the ship on the far left. The fire was put out but not before the 'Hercules' had thrown all her powder overboard to forestall blowing up. Unable to defend herself further, she subsequently surrendered.
