Top: Vice-Admiral Rooke leads a combined British and Dutch fleet in May 1692 when the French fleet assembled off the Isle of Wight.

Middle: Second Lieutenant Swiftacre was found guilty of cowardice and part of his punishment was to have to stand with a noose around his neck as the charge was read out in front of the entire fleet. B

Bottom: the British attacked the French fleet in La Hogue Bay. It was so shallow that the British used longboats and ended up fighting French Cavalry in the shallows.
