HMS 'Condor' at the bombardment of Alexandria, 11 July 1882
The subject of the picture is an incident during the bombardment of Alexandria which occurred in 1882 as the result of an Egyptian nationalist uprising. During the action Commander Lord Charles Beresford of the gun vessel 'Condor', engaged the enemy's Fort Marabout for over an hour at close range, prompting the sending of the signal, 'Well done, Condor', by Admiral Seymour. British forces subsequently landed and this developed into a short but major land campaign under General Sir Garnet Wolseley. In September Arabi Pasha's forces were finally defeated at Tel-el-Kebir and the Khedive's authority restored.
