Foreword

With the fourth installment of the Naval Chronicle the Editor intends on making some minor changes to the layout of the subsequent editions. Rather than publishing the awards and promotions awarded in the edition of that month in which the medal or promotion was earned, the awards and promotions shall from hereon be listed in the following edition of the Chronicle. This will make things clearer and will keep them on display throughout the entire month rather than pushing them into the previous number. This will also, however, have the inevitable effect of making this month's awards and promotions a duplicate of last month's, and for that I hope that my fellow Captains will show oversight.

Britain faces hard times ahead; truly we are headed towards stormy waters as the fleets of our enemies organise and strengthen in numbers. Facing an enemy of equal number is no longer guaranteed to our brave Captains engaging the enemy fleets as we found ourselves outnumbered in several battles in June. However, representatives of all the major Squadrons of the Caribbean are currently working together to build a coalition. We must work together to unite the nation, and when our Squadrons are gathered, and when we focus our attacks, then Britain will rise to Glory once again.

This month will be a tumultous one as our National Officals in Europe are already starting negotiations with Spain and France. Any treaty signed during the current circumstances will certainly not hold longer than a few days, but it would grant our enemies financial gain. We must do our upmost to stop this happening. If it does, we must concentrate and redouble our efforts of sinking the enemy to show them that no amount of wealth or ships will buy them the Caribbean.

With that, the Editor wishes His fellow Captains fair winds, fair seas and the best of luck in the engagements to come.

Enjoy!

Awards

The Senior Officers have discussed and voted in accordance with the rules of the Squadron for those medals that are to be distributed this month. They hereby announce this month's awards:

Award MC.gif Captain Aidan Pryde, Esq.

Mr. Pryde did on June 19th engage 3 French players in the defence of a Britsh 1st rate commanded by a Jonathan Archer near Spanish Town. They sank two of the french players and nearly boarded the 3rd until its escape. As I was not there, this is hearsay, but I trust Mr. Pryde's account and believe him to have earned this medal.


Award CFB.gif Captain Sir William Benbow

Sirs, I would like to make mention of Captain Sir William Benbow, recognizing him for a contribution which I think warrants note.

Returning to action after a spell on land, I found my arsenal of ships sorely unfit to tackle the enemies of the crown, who have since armed themselves to the teeth. I was further disheartened to find the collapse of any central dockyard which could provide me with a ship, and though I had funds, I knew I could not look to the public markets for what I wanted.

Running into Benbow at The Grapes I told him of my misfortunes and that I was looking to obtain a new, sleek Herculese-class vessel, and knowing Benbow used to run his own shipyard, I inquired as to the possibility of making one.

He had one ready for me the next day.

I realize that the simple act of shipbuilding has not historically warranted commendation in the SGS, but I believe it noteworthy that a dedicated captain keeps his dockyard running at trim efficiency, largely on his own, while the rest of the society's economic ventures (including my own) are in shambles.

He got me back in to action much faster than I otherwise could have, and for that I nominate William Benbow for citation.

Nominated by: Captain the Baron James Maddox

Treaty signed in Europe

The current situation in the Caribbean has led the political powers of Europe to sign a treaty granting Spain, and France to a lesser degree, considerable benefits in terms of tax and trade. The treaty, signed by the Regents of the European powers also returns all ports to their original owners. The East India Company is most pleased at seeing her ports returned, but also clearly disappointed with the disadvantegous legislation now governing their trade. Open fighting is expected to break out within the next few days as the Nations vie for dominance of the Caribbean once again.

The Dutch government has ranked the relative strengths of the Europeans nations, and the coalition of pirates in the Caribbean, from strongest to weakest accordingly:

Naval Engagements

Here follows a summary of engagements, actions and battles in which our British ships have taken part during the month. For ship-to-ship duels and flotilla actions, the result column depicts the damage given to each ship. Critical damage in this column represents that the ship sank but lost a point of durability rather than being lost forever.

The red text depicting losses is also used in tables summarizing Port Battles. The black number under each column gives the amount of ships of that class present, and the red number in brackets gives losses from that group.

If any Captain finds any errors in the following account, feel free to edit the erroneous details. Also, the Editor cannot sufficiently stress the appreciation of each report to reach the Admiralty. So do, if at all possible, make a note or two to add to the Chronicle, and deliver it to Captain Sir Will Collister via pm, mail or in person.
