In Haiti, British naval units engage Haitian rebel forces off Cap-Haïtien
The Royal Navy's H.M.S. Bulldog was part of a small force defending British interests in Haiti. When ant-government rebels seized Cap-Haïtien and violated the British Consulate, the Bulldog went into action against rebel forts and gunboats. Unfortunately, she hit a coral reef and fought through the day with some success but stuck fast. Just before midnight, her crew were taken off in boats and the Bulldog blown up. (By John Osborne)
