The 'San Ildefonso' captured by HMS 'Defence'
'Admiral, Sir J. T. Duckworth's Victory over, and Signal Defeat, of the French Fleet, in the Bay of St Domingo London Gazette Extraordinary Admiralty-Office, March 23, 1806'. The 'San Ildefonso' shows British colours flying above Spanish on a jury flagstaff fished to the stump of her mizzen. The Spanish ensign is clearly very large and is presumed to be the one from the ship hung in St Paul's Cathedral for Nelson's funeral, 9 January 1806 (see PAH7332), and subsequently preserved there until presented to Greenwich Hospital by the Dean and Chapter in 1907. It is now NMM AAA0567.
