78 High Street Otford
Being commissioned during a period of comparative peace she did not figure in any great actions. However, she is recorded as having seized the Colombian Government Steamer COLOMBIANO in 1867 but released her soon afterwards. It is assumed that this was an incident in the Spanish South American Wars. Apparently, having no wars of our own to fight we were helping allies fight their battles.
Provenance: J. McC Bazire, "Redbrooks" Otford Kent. Within the original walnut frame. It is interesting to note that these frames are regularly found to be the original frames to watercolours by the Maltese artist Nicholas Cammillieri. It is likely that this wool work picture was completed at sea and then framed when calling at Malta which for almost two hundred years, was the home of the British Mediterranean fleet.
