The Mediterranean fleet under Rear-Admiral Dundas off south-east Spain, Roldan's Gap in sight to the north-west, 7 June 1852 by George Pechell Mends zoom

The Mediterranean fleet under Rear-Admiral Dundas off south-east Spain, Roldan's Gap in sight to the north-west, 7 June 1852

Inscribed top left, 'June 7th 52 / Roldan's / Gap NW by W / SE of Spain' and along the bottom identifying the ships 'Phaeton', 'Spiteful', 'Britannia Adml Dundas', 'Albion', 'Bellerophon','Vengeance', 'Trafalgar' (of which Mends was first lieutenant). The Brecha de Rolando (in Spanish) is a natural gap, 40m across and 100m high, at an altitude of 2804m in the steep cliffs of the Cirque de Gavarnie in the Pyrenees, on the border of France and Spain. It is around 150 miles, or more, from the Spanish coast north of Barcelona (which is the bearing Mends gives) and, from the sea, probably not quite at the scale he records it here - though the fact that he suggests it is visible at such a distance is remarkable enough.
