Captain Sir P.V. Broke, Bart

This engraving shows Captain Sir P.V. Broke, the commander of HMS Shannon when she captured USS Chesapeake on 1 June 1813. This engraving must have been published between September 1813 when he was made a baronet and January 1815 when he became a Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath. The wounds he suffered in this battle ended his active military career, but he survived until 1841.

The picture was engraved by W. Greatbatch.
