The Battle of the Glorious First of June, 1794; stern views of the captured French ships 'L' America' and 'La Juste'

This sketch, begun in pencil and then with parts of the hulls inked, shows two of the French prizes from the Battle of 1 June 1794 at anchor, alongside each other, in Portsmouth Harbour after the return of Howe's fleet. They are identified by faint pencil inscriptions by the artist, which also included colour notes and small sketches of boats under sail, presumably also in the harbour. Pocock had been present at the battle in the frigate 'Pegasus' and perhaps did this drawing on his return to Portsmouth in her though it could have been later. PAJ2478, one print in a set by Richard Livesay showing the vessels captured in the battle, shows the same two ships from a very similar viewpoint.
