HMP Brig 'Sheldrake', Lt Passingham entering Falmouth harbour
The Post Office packet 'Sheldrake', is seen in starboard-broadside view off Falmouth in company with the 'Eclipse' and 'Sandwich'. Falmouth was an important base for packet sailings to the west. The term brig was used even when the vessels were barque-rigged and 'Sheldrake' appears in the 'Navy List' with other vessels under the heading 'Her Majesty's Packet Brigs commissioned by the Admiralty'.
