Hermione HMS

Built at Bristol in 1797 this Ship of the British Royal Navy is famed for having the "the bloodiest mutiny that ever occured in a Ship of the Royal Navy"

Her Captain, Hugh Pigot was renouned as a tyrant, and was murdered along with 9 of his officers by the mutineers, who then sailed the Ship to Spain and handed her over to the Spainiards.

She was re-captured in October 1799 by the boats of HMS Surprise under Captain Sir Edward Hamilton who cut her out from Porto Gabello.
