"The Albion, Captain Ommanney, anchored within pistol shot of the Turkish line of battle ship, and a double-banked frigate; on casting anchor, she swung aboard a large frigate of 56 guns, which she boarded and carried.The Turks ran below, and fired up the hatchways, and wounded some of the men of the feet; they afterwards set fire to the ship, and her cables were scarcely disengaged when she blew up, with great part of her crew on board.
The Albion's fire was so destructive, that in half an hour she entirely disabled the Turkish liner, whose crew cut her cables and deserted her in boats; after drifting past the Azoff, this ship ran ashore with her fore top-mast stay-sail, and was burnt and blown up on Sunday.
The two line of battle ships that had engaged the Asia and Genoa drifted past the Albion toward the close of the action, and fired occasional guns as they past_ Captain C.J. Stevens killed, with 10 men, 50 wounded"

The Hind, tender to the Asia, the mast only of which is seen, unfortunately entangled her main boom in one of the stern portdsof Macharem Bey's ship. The Turks made strenuous efforts to board without success; the conduct of Lieut. Robb was perfectly heroic_ 4 killed, 8 wounded.

Black & white lithograph Plate 2 from Reinagle's "Illustrations of the Battle of Navarin." Printed on india paper, mounted, verso blank.
The plate focuses on the Scipion:
"The Scipion on entering the harbour ran aboard one of the Brulots and entangled her bowsprit with the rigging of the Brulot's fore and main masts She is represented as just having anchored by the stern; the flames from the fire brig ran in at the bow ports and exploded the cartridges in the men's hands; three times the fire caught several parts of the ship, and nine of her men died of the burns they received in disengaging her bowsprit.
Capt. Sir Thomas Fellowes (of the Dartmouth) sent a boat to her assistance, which, together with one from the Rose, and one from the Philomel, succeeded in towing the Brulot from under her bows _ 2 killed, 36 wounded.
The gallant commander of the Dartmouth anchored in such a position, as to rake the Turkish line; her fore and mizen top-gallant sails were burnt, and she narrowly escaped catching fire from a Brulot, that drifted on her starboard quarter, near enough to be boomed off.
The Dartmouth sunk some small vessels close to the town early in the action. Captain Davies of the rose behaved with great personal bravery, and actually had hold of the main chains of the fire brig( in the act of boarding her) when she blew up.
The Rose afterwards made sail to the assistance of the Armide, and resolutely cast anchor within pistol shot of two Turkish corvettes _ 3 killed, 15 wounde.
Mount Temathia is seen in the background."
