Relief of Gibraltar by Earl Howe, 11 October 1782
A contemporary interpretation of the Relief of Gibraltar by Earl Howe on 11 October 1782. Since the garrison at Gibraltar had not received any supplies since Darby's relief in April 1781, Lord Howe sailed for Gibraltar in September 1782. He took a fleet of 183 sail, 38 of which were ships of the line. The success of the mission was greatly assisted by the new code of signals based on the system of Admiral Kempenfelt. All the merchantmen moored safely between 16 and 18 October so that Gibraltar had another year's supplies.
