The Battle of Navarino.

The Scipion. Reinagle, George Philip. Lithograph by Hullmandel after Reinagle. The Scipion. "The Scipion anchored by the Stern and the Dartmouth raking the Turkish line" London Colnaghi & Son, Pall Mall East January 18th 1828
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."
