Following on from looking at the Dutch flagships at the Battle of Camperdown in Part One of this series of posts, I turn the focus on the British and three of the four 64-gun ships of the line that formed a core component of Vice-Admiral Sir Richard Onslow's Leeward Division.

This look at the British fleet and these particular ships that were heavily engaged in the fighting with the Dutch rear and with two of them moving to support the fighting with the Dutch van gives an opportunity to look at the logs from the battle that illustrates the fighting these ships took part in from deck level.
