HMS Surprise: British Frigate 1769Kit


Captured by the H.MS. Inconstant in 1796, the French corvette L'Unite was converted into a 28-gun sixth-rate and renamed H.M.S. Surprise. She carried twenty-four 32-pound carronades on her main deck, eight on her quarter deck and forecastle, plus four 6-pound long guns as chasers. H.M.S. Surprise is the real vessel in Patrick O’Brien’s famous fictional works that tell of Captain Jack Aubrey's adventures, as he sets out on dangerous missions and holds his ground against various enemies. It’s also the star of the recent hit movie, Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World.
