The Privateer 'Fly' and other vessels
A portrait of the 'Fly', 16 guns, in port-broadside view. She is shown heading south in the Downs (off the east coast of Kent) on the starboard tack, flying a pre-1801 Union jack on the end of her bowsprit and the red ensign. She also appears in stern view on the left heading towards an anchored two-decker flying the flag of a vice-admiral of the blue at the fore, a jack and a blue ensign. Another ship under reduced sail is on the far left, with various small craft also in view. Under the 'Fly's' bowsprit can be seen the cliffs of the South Foreland.
