Captain Rose Henry Fuller RN

Commander Royal Navy

On the 26th. of November, off Cape Rousse, island of Corsica, the boats of the British 74-gun ship Swiftsure, Captain Edward Stirling Dickson, under the orders of Lieutenant William Smith, the 4th, were detached in pursuit of the French privateer schooner Charlemagne, of eight guns and 93 men, who was using every exertion by sweeping to effect her escape. On the approach of the boats, the privateer made every preparation for resistance, and reserved her fire till the boats had opened theirs ; when the schooner returned it in the most determined manner for some minutes, until the boats got close alongside. The British then boarded the Charlemagne on the bow and quarter and instantly carried her ; but not without a serious loss, having had one midshipman (Joseph Douglas) and four seamen killed, and two lieutenants (Rose Henry Fuller and John Harvey, the latter mortally), one lieutenant of marines (James Robert Thompson), one midshipman (----- Field), and 11 seamen wounded
