Description

Caldercraft HM Cutter Sherbourne

The HM Cutter Sherbourne was a Royal Navy cutter that served during the Napoleonic Wars. The cutter was built in 1804 and had a crew of around 60 men.

HM Cutter Sherbourne was known for her speed and agility, which made her well-suited for chasing down and capturing enemy ships. She was armed with cannons and used for various tasks, including patrolling coastal waters, escorting convoys, and intercepting smugglers.

One of the most notable actions involving the HM Cutter Sherbourne was during the capture of the French privateer Vengeur in 1812. The Sherbourne engaged and successfully captured the heavily armed privateer, which had been preying on British merchant ships in the English Channel.

The HM Cutter Sherbourne continued to serve the Royal Navy throughout the Napoleonic Wars, playing a vital role in protecting British interests at sea. However, like many ships of the era, her exact fate is not well-documented, and it is unclear what ultimately happened to her.

The HM Cutter Sherbourne’s service exemplifies the important role that smaller vessels like cutters played in naval operations during the Age of Sail, undertaking a variety of missions with speed and precision.
