French Frigate “La Renommée”

1 - La Renommee

In my last post, I originally assumed that the French ship, La Renommée, which captured HMS Hazard in Montrose Harbour was the famous French Frigate of that name.

However I have had a conversation online with David Stockman, the author of an excellent booklet regarding that Frigate, and now realise that the French ship involved in the action at Montrose was a smaller transport ship with the same name.  I have therefore amended my post.

The booklet about the French Frigate La Renommée can be downloaded as a free PDF here.
