The capture of Fort Louis, Martinique, 20 March 1794

On 5th February 1794, Sir John Jervis and Lieutenant General Sir Charles Grey, arrived at Martinique and by 20 March the whole island, with the exception of Fort Bourbon and Fort Royal, had submitted. Jervis ordered the 'Asia', 64 guns and the 'Zebra' sloop to storm Fort Louis, the chief defence of Fort Royal. The 'Asia' was unable to reach her position, and so Commander Faulknor of the 'Zebra' volunteered to attempt to capture it alone. He ran his sloop close under the walls notwithstanding a very heavy fire, jumped overboard and followed by his ship's company, stormed and captured the fort. Meanwhile the boats captured Fort Royal and two days later Fort Bourbon capitulated.
