Description

HMS Sybille was originally the 38-gun frigate “Sybille” of the French Navy, launched in 1791 in Toulon. She was captured by the 50-guns HMS Romney in 1794, and commissioned into service in the Royal Navy, where it served until 1833. HMS Sybille participated in several notable ship actions, capturing two French frigates and several privateers and brigs; and she participated in the Battle of Copenhagen, where it bombarded the city. After the Napoleonic Wars, on anti-slavery duties off West Africa from 1827 to 1830, Sybille captured numerous slavers and freed some 3,500 slaves. This ship pack can also be used to represent the British frigate “HMS Amelia 1796”.
