HMS Leander/HMS Adamant - Sails of Glory Ship Pack - New

The Portland class was a class of British 4th rate ships, armed with 50 cannons and with a designed crew of 350 men. They were armed with 22 24–Pounder guns in the lower deck, 22 12–Pounder guns in the upperdeck, 4 6–Pounder guns in the quarterdeck, and 2 6–Pounder guns in the forecastle.

HMS Leander, launched at Chatham on 1 July 1780, served on the west coast of Africa, West Indies, and the Halifax station. During the French Revolutionary Wars, HMS Leander participated in the Battle of the Nile and was captured by French, then captured again by Russians and Turks. On 25 April 1805 cannon fire from Leander killed an American seaman with the resulting “Leander Affair” that contributed to the worsening of relations between the USA and Great Britain. In 1813 Leander was converted to a hospital ship under the name Hygeia.

This ship pack can also be used to represent the British Portland Class “HMS Adamant 1780.
