Journal

Date Location Entry
1721, August 24th Nassau Served as acting Commodore of White Group at the port battle of Nassau after the unfortunate loss of Lord Fletcher's Oakhampton, 54, during our charge of the French line. Maintained combat with the enemy, sinking two vessels and severely damaging others, and successfully led the group until the end of the battle without incurring any further losses.
1721, September 25th Bluefields Served as Commodore of White Group at the port battle of Bluefields. After half an hour's manoeuvering, during which white group kept in formation and position in the fleet, the Spaniards retreated to the fortress. White group was then ordered to first blockade the fortress and then take the town by land, which were both done without incurring any losses.
1721, December 29th Cartagena Served as Commodore of Black Group at the port battle of Cartagena. The British fleet was present in much greater force and the Spanish Captains retreated to the Fortress. Black Group led the steady approach to the enemy fortifications and partook in the successful landing operation without incurring any losses. A single Spanish ship lurking in the canyons to the south put her helm to the horizon and fled as soon as the Union Jack ran up the fortress and the British fleet turned its attention to the town.
1722, January 7th Irish Point Served as Commodore of White Group at the port battle of Irish Point. The British fleet was charged by the Spanish fleet upon approaching the port. The Spanish line began to sail parallell to ours and exchanged a couple of broadsides with our lead ships. The Admiral gave the order to charge straight into their line, however, and the battle quickly turned into a pell-mell with ships firing cannons on all sides continuously. White Group served in the midst of the battle, having sailed to the head of our fleet early on, engaging enemy vessels on all sides. After ten minutes of combat, the Spanish fleet broke and sailed to the fortress. White Group joined the general chase and formed part of the landing party that dispatched of the remaining Spanish Captains in the fortress. Having sunk four vessels and not incurred any losses, White Group's performance was indicative of that of the British fleet and a great victory was won.
