No. 21 of 74 (PAJ1976 - PAJ2049). Titled, signed and dated as above, this shows a British brig called 'Expedition' aground, with salvage in progress, on the western point of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Boats are in attendance and men on deck are apparently recovering cargo from the hold with a tackle rigged to the mainstay. The upper masts and yards have already been removed. It was presumably seen by Bray as his ship ran into the harbour at Santa Cruz. Since they in fact only anchored there on 6 January 1775, this is one of the Bray drawings that suggest he added the title and date later, from slightly inaccurate recollection. This is one of 73 drawings by him (plus one signed 'NF 1782') preserved in a 19th century album that was purchased for the Museum by the Macpherson Fund of the Society for Nautical Research in April 1991. They have now been separately remounted. Bray (1750-1823), was second lieutenant of the 44-gun 'Pallas' under Captain the Hon. William Cornwallis (1744-1819)
