Foreword

August saw a decrease of British Naval activity in the Caribbean. A lot of British Captains spent time ashore resting and recovering from the multitude of engagements and battles of the preceeding month. If our fleets were sleeping, then politically our Nation was truly alive! Discussion and debate has brought the British Parliament to new heights of organization and efficiency. Co-ordinated attacks on enemy ports have been performed for the first time by member Societies, and these attacks have clearly showed what can be achieved with a united Nation and battle fleet.

This month Britain will be looking to retake control of the Caribbean. Our enemies have made strategic advances and a treaty has been signed in Europe granting them considerable financial benefit. As we rally our ships and Captains, we must remember to continue co-ordinating our efforts if we are to win this war.

The beginning of this month has seen the first few engagements of our new Battle Group Ares, headed up by Viscount Middlemore. Amongst some of its early achievements, Battle Group Ares defeated a heavier French squadron off Irish Point; with only Tigre Mastercraft class frigates our brave Captains succeeded in taking or sinking 3 Mercy, a Heavy Hercules and an Achilles class frigates. This truly presents future operations of the Battle Group in favourable light!

September also sees a wealth of awards presented to many of our deserving Captains. Details are listed, as per usual, in the Admiralty News section below. Finally, on a personal note, the Editor has been deeply honoured this month with a promotion to Viscount and Senior Officer. The Editor is most grateful for the well-placed trust and will endeavour to continue providing the service to the Squadron for which he has been promoted.

So, sail forth brave Captains, and sink, take or burn the ships of our enemies!

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 Sir J. R. Lapenotiere

Dear Sirs,

I would like to recommend captain Lapenotiere for a Military Cross for his actions at the battle of Nassau. This is the first time I have see Captain Lapenotiere in a port battle and he show great courage and situational awareness. Several times he placed his ship in danger in order to protect a friendly vessel. Further more he did so on his own initiative, not waiting for orders but correctly judging the flow of the battle and placing his ship in the correct location.

Nominated by: Captain the Lord Fletcher


Award MC.gif Captain the Lord Joseph Fletcher

For his raising of and comanding the first taskforce fleet at Caracas,PC, TB. This was our first coordinated effort with multi fleets at multi locations for the SGS in a long time.

Nominated by: Captain Earl Dai



Award MC.gif Captain Sir Richard Moradir

Sir Moradir was ready to step up and go in to aid 2 british officers who were engaged by 5 from the spanish squadron of "This is Spain".

His selfless action, to aid other captains in need of aid, should not go unnoticed by, he were only stopped as I ordered him not to, because I needed his service in blockading.

He followed my orders, even tho he would really have loved to go in, without fear of ship and life, to save those fellow captain.

Nominated by: Captain the Baron James Raleigh


Award DSC.gif Captain Earl Dai

Dear Sirs,

I would like to nominate Captain The Count Alec Dai for a Distinguished Service Cross.

His tireless effords and his excellent leadership in the recent PvP fights and especially in the port battles at Puerto del Principe and West End at the 10. July were impressive and of high value for the british war effords.

Best regards, Captain Leo Davis M.G., Baron of Crowcombe


Award DSC.gif Captain Sir Nathan Blatchford

Captain Blatchford, Esq. has consistently and determinedly honed his skills as a frigate captain specialising in independent cruising, and I believe this month has borne the fruit of his labours in terms of months of training and hard experience.

On July 9th/10th 1721 Captain Blatchford did single-handedly, captaining the HMS Legionaire, sink or carry three enemy fifth-rate frigates sailing French or Spanish colours and captained by commanders of notable skill and repute. In each successive action, Captain Blatchford and the Legionaires under his command established complete dominance over the enemy and received negligible damage in return. This hat-track of victories seals Captain Blatchford's place as one of Saint George Squadron's foremost frigate captains, a true sea-hawk whose success serves to strike fear in the hearts of our enemies and further the good name of the Squadron.

Since these actions Captain Blatchford's success has continued with a string of victories recorded in the Naval Chronicle. The nature of a frigate captain's work as an independent cruiser means that because often no other SGS officer is present to note their actions, they rarely receive due credit for bravery in terms of award recommendations.

However there should be no doubt that to hunt the seas alone, in a single frigate, and to achieve such victories, requires a tremendous amount of bravery, fearlessness, cunning, and skill. The degree of all of these displayed by Captain Blatchford warrants him the note and merit of the Distinguished Service Cross.

Nominated by: Captain Viscount Middlemore


Award DSC.gif Captain Viscount Middlemore

For delaying an attack by the french by boarding their ship and fighting the good fight. making time for the rest of the sqaudron to escape.

Captains: Dai, Middlemore,Morely,Moradir Ships: Sleek Herc x2, Trinidad, Intrepid.

First engagement: Rescuing Mr. Berret. He was being attacked by 3 pirates ( Pherc, CBx2 ) we were approx 1500 yds away and closed on the group, forming aline. Our first target was a CB. We found that the CB, was a Bucc and resist fit,. So most of our damage was mitigated. We tried to split the group of pirates but got an unfavorable wind.

Butchers Bill: we lost Moradir, not able to sink any pirates.

It took a bit of time to sort our line. We had good cover when the line was sorted. We had a very hard time getting all ships into a firing solution , at sometime moments only 2 ships could fire. It is important, to have ships thaty can sail a certain speed so it is easier to stay together. Also, ignore the Bucc/resist and hit the cutts first.

_______

Second engagement: Attacked by french. Monte Blanc, Mercyx2,Achillesx2 We had a horrible wind point and only option was to charge them, passing, firing and seeing what would happen. After the pass and firing on a Mercy we had to try to lag it out. The French went for Middlemore's sails and boarded him. Mr. Middlemore, fought the good fight helping buy time for the others to escape. Mr. Morely was engulfed also and taken. Moradir and I were able to escape.

Butchers Bill: Middlemore, Morely.

This engagement was won by the French on better wind position and far heavier ships. At the range that the engagement began we had no room to kite and was forced to take full broadsides at under 300 meters. This engagement was lost due to numbers not skill

Nominated by: Captain Earl Dai


Award DSC.gif Captain Viscount Collister

Dear Sirs,

I would like to nominate Captain Sir Will Collister for a Distinguished Service Cross.

His performance at the Port Battle in Puerto del Principe at the 10. July was excellent and the firepower of his Wenden third rate HMS Africa helped us a lot to win the battle. In addition I want to point out his excellent After Action Report for this port battle, which shows once again his eager dedication to our cause.

Best regards, Captain Leo Davis M.G., Baron of Crowcombe


Award CFB.gif Captain Chris McDella

I would like to nominate the honorable Captain Chris McDella for the St.George Squadron's Citation, Conspicuous Bravery for his splendid services to our fleet. He has supplied our captains with many a good ship, and he always does so quickly and effectively. It is always a pleasure to deal with this polite and friendly captain.

Sincerely, Captain Sir James Wilmore


Award CFB.gif Captain Crichton

To our esteemed Sea Lord and Admiralty, Sirs, it is my pleasure to nominate Captain Crichton for a citation for conspicuous bravery. In a patrol off Nassau he led a group of relatively new players against an overwhelming force of 12 French captains, and, making brilliant use of tactics, local geography, and focused fire, won the day, and helped his fellow officers learn some vital principles of warfare on the high seas.

The battle is detailed in the following report: Patrolling Nassau

Nominated by : Captain the Baron James Maddox


Award CFB.gif Captain Ashden

On August 25th, 1721, Captain Ashden did put her ship in great peril to protect Lord Middlemore's Trinity class Second Rate, HMS Vanguard. She recieved great fire and took damage as her Raa Mastercraft ship absorbed many hits. Though in vain as Captain Middlemore's ship was sunk, she did then sail her ship away and help to finish off the treacherous French who had sunk the Vanguard. This disregard for personaly safety and willingness to put her ship in danger should be noted and awarded.

Captain Sir Roderick Morrow

(OOC: Middlemore disconnected while trying to repair after a group consisting of him, myself, Captain Ashden, and Captain Zee tackled a French 12. He was taking great damage in the stern so I ordered Ashden to cover it which he did willingly with no argument. Unfotunately I relaized too late that Middlmore was disconnected and so failed to do more for him, however, Ashden was not to blame and if my opinion should be awarded for such teamplay.)


Award Governors.gif Captain Sir James Wilmore

James Wilmore is one of the Squadron's best examples of a selfless Captain of the highest merit. His continued work in assisting members with custom flags and avatars without even being formally approached by the Office of Commissions is a testament to that. Additionally, his continued work as Chief of Naval Personnel has been highly commendable.

Captain Viscount Mackenzie

Treaty signed in Europe

Having quickly taken control of major shipping lanes and hence the majority of trade routes and income in the Caribbean, France has now used its advantage to press him a treaty in Europe. Our National representatives, as well as those of our enemies France and Spain, have signed a treaty granting great economic benefits and tax relief, as well as some financial reward, France. This treaty is not expected to hold and soon there will once again be "no peace beyond the line".

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:

HMS Britannia officially launched

A Squadron of six lineships and two escorting frigates set sail from Port Royal on the evening of September 4th, 1721. This was to be the first official duty of the newly commissioned HMS Britannia, first rate ship of the line of the Invincible class.

After a short speech by Captain Sir James Wilmore, Captain of the fine new vessel, a course was set for the Gulf of Mexico. Captain Sir James Wilmore took on the position as Commodore to mark and celebrate the significance of another first-rate Ship of the Line taking place in the Squadron. The ships that took part in the cruise were as follows (some captains on and off):

Ship Class Captain
HMS Britannia, 102 Invincible, first-rate Captain Sir James Wilmore
HMS Prince George, 100 Prince, first-rate Captain the Baron Leo Davis
HMS Inexorable, 92 Trinity, second-rate Captain Earl Seaborn
HMS Hope and Glory, 82 Triumphant, second-rate Captain Viscount Collister
HMS Ark Raleigh, 82 Triumphant, second-rate Captain the Baron James Raleigh
HMS Tellus, 72 Wenden, third-rate Captain McAvoy
HMS Royal George, 44 Mercy, fifth-rate Captain Clonfert
HMHV Staffordshire, 28 Stralsund, fifth-rate Captain Jonathan Grey


Such was the collected skill and firepower of the above vessels and Captains, that more than eighty enemy ships were burned, taken or sunk. These ships included patrolling fleets, resupply fleets, manoeuvering fleets, treasure fleets, etc.

The cruise served as an example of what can be achieved when our fine Ships of the Line are assembled into a group and set forth on a cruise. The deafening roar of over 400 guns is almost witness enough to the power and potential of such fleets and cruises.

Sincerely,

Captain Viscount Collister


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 Viscount Collister via pm, mail or in person.
