From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

On 5 November 1813, late in the Napoleonic Wars, a British squadron engaged in a skirmish with the French Mediterranean Fleet, based near the port city of Toulon. This action was part of an attempted blockade of the port by British forces. The skirmish became the subject of a painting by Thomas Luny, entitled The Blockade of Toulon, 1810-14: Pellew's Action, 5 November 1813. [1]
