Napoleonic Memoir: HMS Junon, Frigates Renommée and the Clorinde

Napoleonic Memoir: What I’ve learned (thus far), that’s not recorded: The history books record: The ship HOPE, in March, 1810, on her second voyage to Tobago in Bristol ownership (John Litson, master), was reported taken by two French frigates. We now know those French frigates were: The Renommée and the Clorinde. The French frigates were planning to transfer their prisoners from HMS Junon, to the HOPE. However, up on sighting a British warship and fearing confrontation, set the HOPE on fire.
