The Battle of Lowestoft, 3-13 June 1665

A Dutch inscription is written on the reverse. The battle is depicted at about 3pm, and shows the 'Eendracht' blowing up. The wind is south-west, and the fleets are standing in two lines to the south-south east close-hauled on the starboard tack, the Dutch leeward. In the left foreground, there is a confused piece of drawing showing Lawson's flag ('Lauson') and Berkeley ('barckleij') with a ship ahead, leading the English line; the 'Oranje' bearing up on Berkeley's lee bow ('tschip Oranjie moet wijcken'). Close astern of Berkeley, is the Duke of York in the 'Royal Charles' (ducke). In the centre middle distance, the 'Eendract' is shown blowing up. Astern of the red squadron and stretching back into the centre distance are Teddiman (tijdeman teddeman), Sandwich (zantwits), Ayscue (askuij vis) of the blue squadron, and Sansum (simson), Rupert (de p Robert) and Myngs (wits visd
