Battle of Negapatam, 6 July 1782

A depiction of the third of the five fleet actions fought off Ceylon and the east coast of India, at the end of the War of American Independence, between the French and English East Indies squadrons of Pierre-Andre de Suffren, and Sir Edward Hughes. The others were on 17 February 1782 off Sadras, on 12 April off Providien, on 30 September off Trincomalee and on 30 June 1783 off Porto Novo - or Cuddalore. All were furiously contested, both admirals being tenacious fighters, and at Negapatam the French 'Brilliant', lost 47 killed and 136 wounded. The captain of the 'Severe', ordered his colours struck but his first lieutenant, refusing to accept this, forcibly shut him up in his cabin and rehoisted them. At the end the British had lost 77 killed and 233 wounded, while the French lost 178 killed and 600 wounded.
