Product Description

 

HMS Surprise was the name the Royal Navy gave to the French Navy‘s corvette Unité after her capture in 1796. Launched on 16 February 1794, the ship gained fame in 1799 for the recapture of HMS Hermione, and in 1802 was sold out of the service.

Historical fiction author Patrick O’Brian set many of his Aubrey–Maturin series aboard HMS Surprise, including the 2003 film.
