HMS GLATTON tall ship model

HMS Glatton was a 56-gun fourth rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy. Originally an East Indiaman, she was bought by the Royal Navy in 1795, and converted into a warship.

Glatton was unusual in that she was the only ship of the line to be armed exclusively with carronades instead of the traditional long guns that other warships carried in this era. Carronades were half the weight of the equivalent cannon, and could be worked by fewer men. They could also fire much heavier shot; Glatton was armed with twenty-eight 64-pounder and twenty-eight 32-pounder carronades. This extremely heavy armament meant that the fourth rate Glatton could discharge a heavier and more destructive broadside than the mighty first-rate Victory. 

In the Battle of Camperdown in 1797, under her first captain, Henry Trollope, this heavy armament allowed HMS Glatton to attack a French squadron consisting of a 50-gun ship, five frigates, a brig, and a cutter in the English Channel and drive them into Flushing.

At the Battle of Copenhagen in 1801, HMS Glatton was commanded by Captain William Bligh, formerly of HMS Bounty.  Having spotted a Dutch frigate maneuvering to attack HMS Elephant--the flagship of Admiral Horatio Nelson, Bligh sailed directly into the line of fire and caught most of the enemy's broadside.  Glatton was severely damaged but remained afloat; Elephant was saved.
