BENNET, off Cherbourg.
On the morning of 30 January 1804 TRIBUNE fell in with a small French flotilla bound from St, Malo to Cherbourg.
It consisted of three brigs and some smaller vessels but, as it was blowing hard, only two brigs could be captured, each carrying two 34-pounders and one 18 pounder.
They were manned by 51 seamen and 50 soldiers.
Capt. BENNET sent them into Portsmouth.
A frigate, believed to be HYDRA, captured a lugger from the flotilla and went off in chase of another.
- Capt BENNET appeared before a court martial at Portsmouth on 21 February 1805 to answer for his conduct in returning to England from Gibraltar without orders.
The charge was proved but the court decided that he was "actuated by the purest motives for the good of the navy" and he was acquitted.
