Vice-Admiral Lord Alan Gardner (1742-1809)
Early in his career Gardner saw action at the Battle of Quiberon Bay, 1759. Much of his later career was spent on American and West Indian stations. In 1778 while commanding the 'Maidstone' he captured a large and heavily armed French merchantman. He commanded the 'Sultan' at Grenada, 1779, the 'Duke' at the Saints, 1782, and had his flag in the 'Queen' at the battle of the First of June, 1794. He was Commander-in-Chief on the coast of Ireland in 1801 and of the Channel Fleet in 1807. He is shown half-length in vice-admiral's undress uniform, 1787-1795, with the First of June gold chain, but not the medal. Signed and dated 'A. Hickel, 1794'.
