The capture of the Foudroyant by HMS Monmouth, 28 February 1758
The 'Foudroyant' was a large and new 80-gun French flagship of a squadron under Admiral Duquesne. On 28 February 1758 she was on her way to relieve the French Commodore, de la Clue, at Cartagena when she was intercepted by Admiral Osborn with three British ships of the line. 'Foudroyant' was taken into the Royal Navy after capture and during her working life was considered to be its finest two-decker.
