George Walker privateer in 1747 hunting treasure ships. Walker's battle with the Glorioso is commemorated in an oil painting by Charles Brooking which now hangs in Greenwich Maritime Museum. Walker died in 1777.

As the wind billowed the sails of the becalmed man-o'-war, pirate Walker took one last precaution of hailing it. The reply was a crashing broadside. This is the original artwork for the illustration on pp10-11 of Look and Learn no. 388 (21 June 1969).
