Honour - Tamatave 1811
A squadron of 3 x 40-gun French frigates comprising Renommee,
Clorinde and Nereide, encountered a British squadron of 3 x
36-gun frigates plus 1 sloop, off Foul Point, North of Tamatave, Madagascar.
Galatea was badly damaged but when the French commander - Commodore Roquefort, was killed, Renommee struck her colours.
Nereide escaped into Tamatave but surrendered a few days later.
Clorinde escaped and eventually reached Brest.
