The Battle of the Nile, 1 August 1798. Chart of Aboukir Bay and of the action
A detailed annotated scaled chart or plan of Aboukir Bay, with the main action of the Battle of the Nile shown on the left including the explosion of 'L'Orient' and , on the right, the later disposition of the two fleets on the morning of 2 August. Other ship positions in the aftermath are shown round the bay, with a detailed key to ships, guns (and crew numbers for the British) at the bottom. Pocock presumably drew this up to help his own understanding of the battle, and it may relate to the plan included in Clarke and Macarthur's life of Nelson (1809) which includes such battle plans for all Nelson's main fleet actions.
