Holidays in England - Rapparee Cove

Rapparee Cove
On the night of 9th October 1796, at half after eight, the transport ship London of "the ganges convoy" is coming for this harbour. It was taken by a heavy squall which took and forced her upon the rocks below in the rapparee cove. She was carrying St. Lucian prisoners of war, and upwards of 40 brave souls where lost, along with courageous local people who went to their assistance.
