HMS Leopard/HMS Isis - Sails of Glory Ship Pack - SGN110B

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 Leopard saw service during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, and was active in Europe, East Indies and Egypt. In 1807, a group of British sailors – some of American birth – deserted and joined the crew of USS Chesapeake. Captain Humphreys, commanding Leopard, requested permission to search for the deserters. Chesapeake’s captain refused, and Leopard opened fire, capturing the American ship. Humphreys took back four deserters and hanged the British–born ones. This incident was one of several episodes that increased the tension between the British Empire and the United States, finally exploding in the War of 1812.

Captain Jack Aubrey comanded of HMS Leopard in Desolation Island. 

This ship pack can also be used to represent the British Portland Class “HMS Isis1790.”
