This is the unique original Watercolour painting by Barrie Linklater.

On the night of January 11th 1794 Captain Hood sailed his ship H.M.S. Juno into the French port of Toulon. Hood mistakenly believed that the important port and it's ships were still in the hands of Royalists who had given the ships over to a combined British and Spanish force.

In fact the town had been overrun by Republicans and battery after battery soon opened fire on the Juno. A fortunate change in wind direction helped the twice holed ship to limp out of harbour with no loss of life.

Original artwork from Look and Learn #286 8th July 1967.
