HMS 'Clyde' arriving at Sheerness after the 'Nore' mutiny, 30 May 1797

During the mutiny at the Nore, off Sheerness, which followed on from that at Spithead, only two ships' captains managed to maintain some control of their commands. One of these was Captain Charles Cunningham of the frigate, 'Clyde'. On 29 May, he managed to persuade his men to ignore the summons from the rebel leader Richard Parker, in the 'Sandwich', to a conference. Instead, at 21.00 that night, Cunningham assembled his crew and told them that he intended to take the 'Clyde' into Sheerness. After midnight she slipped her cable and made for Sheerness, anchoring there at dawn. The port admiral, Vice-Admiral Buckner, then defiantly rehoisted his flag in her, the mutineers having hauled it down in the guardship, 'Sandwich'.
