JOHN QUILLIAM

Captain John Quilliam RN (born Marown, Isle of Man 29 September 1771 - died Michael, Isle of Man 10 October 1829) was a Royal Navy officer and the First Lieutenant on HMS VICTORY at the Battle of Trafalgar. He was a farmer’s son from the Isle of Man who was impressed in the Royal Navy in 1794.
Career
The eldest son of John Quilliam and Christian Clucas of Ballakelly, he was apprenticed to a stonemason, and then worked as a labourer until he was impressed into the Royal Navy in 1794.
Unlike most impressed sailors, Quilliam rose rapidly in the Royal Navy. He is first recorded in 1797 at the Battle of Camperdown when he was made a Lieutenant by Admiral Duncan. He was a Third Lieutenant on HMS ETHALION. On 7 October 1799 Quilliam's share of prize money for the capture of the 36 gun Spanish treasure ship THETIS was over £5000. He was First Lieutenant aboard HMS AMAZON at the Battle of Copenhagen in 1801, his gallantry and calmness under fire following the death of Captain Edward Riou and all the senior officers on his ship was rewarded with being made First Lieutenant on HMS VICTORY by Horatio Nelson.
Quilliam soon repaid the faith Nelson had placed in him as the following extract from James's Naval History of Great Britain shows, he assisted in steering her into action at Trafalgar: - "Just as she (the VICTORY) had got about 500 yards of the larboard beam of the BUCENTAURE the VICTORY's mizzen-topmast was shot away, about two-thirds up. A shot also struck and knocked to pieces the wheel; and the ship was obliged to be steered from the gun room, the first lieutenant (John Quilliam) and master (Thomas Atkinson) relieving each other at the duty.
After Trafalgar he was promoted to Captain and placed in command of HMS ILDEFONSO. He returned to the Isle of Man and in 1807, he was elected a member of the House of Keys.
In 1808, he was captain of Admiral Stopford's flagship, HMS SPENCER. In 1812, he was captain of HMS CRESENT and served as such until the defeat of Napoleon in 1815. During this time he captured a 14 gun American privateer, the ELBRIDGE GERRY during the War of 1812.
He then returned to the Isle of Man and resided at the White House in Kirk Michael. He was re-elected a member of House of Keys in 1817.
Qulliam died in 1829 and was buried in the graveyard at Kirk Arbory.
Memorial
There is the following inscription on his tombstone;
"Sacred to the memory of John Quilliam, Esq., Captain in the Royal Navy. In his early service he was appointed by Adml. Lord Duncan to act as lieutenant at the Battle of Camperdown; after the victory was achieved, this appointment was confirmed. His gallantry and professional skill at the Battle of Copenhagen attracted the notice of Lord Nelson, who subsequently sought for his services on board his own ship, and as his lordship's first lieut. he steered the VICTORY into action at the Battle of Trafalgar. By the example of Duncan and Nelson he learned to conquer. By his own merit he rose to command: above all this he was an honest man, the noblest work of God. After many years of honourable and distinguished professional service, he retired to this land of his affectionate solicitude and birth, where in his public station as a member of the House of Keys, and in private life, he was in arduous times the uncompromising defender of the rights and privileges of his countrymen, and the zealous and able supporter of every measure tending to promote the welfare and the best interests of his country. He departed this life on 10 October 1829 in the 59th year of his age. This monument is erected by Margaret C. Quilliam to the memory of her beloved husband."

JORGE DE MENEZES and Portuguese galleon

The two stamps shows us a Portuguese galleon in which Jorge de Menezes arrived in Papua New Guinea, not a name for the ship is given, and I believe there is not a painting or drawing which shows the ship or Jorge de Menezes. Most probably a ship of that time frame is shown.

Jorge de Menezes (c. 1498 – 1537) was a Portuguese explorer, who in 1526–1527 landed on the islands of Biak (Cenderawasih Bay), whilst he awaited the passing of the monsoon season, and on the northern coasts of the Bird's Head Peninsula, calling the region Ilhas dos Papuas. He is thus credited with the European discovery of New Guinea.
Jorge de Menezes was the Portuguese Governor of the Moluccas from 1527 until 1530, residing on Ternate. While in office, he plundered a Spanish fort on Tidore, poisoned the sultan of Ternate and committed atrocities against the local population. Subsequently he was arrested and sent to India. After his return to Portugal he was banished to Brazil, where he died in combat against Indians in 1537.

LE FANTASQUE 10 (France)

Built in 1931-'36 by Arsenal Lorient, laid down 15-11-1931, launched 15-03-'34, commissioned 01-05-'36.
Le Fantasque class destroyer, displacement:2570 tons, Loa:132,40m. (434.4') B:11,98m. (39.3') Draft:4,30m. (14.1') 4 Penhöet boilers, 2 Rateau-Bretagne turbines:81.000 hp. 2 shafts, 45 kn. complement:220, armament:5 × 138 mm (5.4") guns (2 forward, 3 aft)
4 × 37 mm AA guns (original) 4 × 13 mm AA machine guns (original)
8 × 40 mm Bofors AA guns (after refit)
10 × 20 mm Oerlikon AA guns (after refit)
9 × 550 mm torpedo tubes in three triple mounts, 40 mines.

Le Fantasque was the first destroyer of its class, out of a total of six units built by order of the French naval program in 1930. These ships were designed to outclass the large escorts built by the Italian navy. The design strongly stressed firepower and speed over armour protection, and indeed, Le Fantasque is still to this day the fastest type of destroyer ever built.
In the beginning of the Second World War, Le Fantasque patrolled the Atlantic with the Force de Raid, sinking the German cargo ship Halle on 16 October 1939 and capturing its crew. She also took part in the hunt for the German cruiser Admiral Graf Spee. On 25 November, along with her sister ship Le Terrible and the heavy cruiser Dupleix, she captured the German merchantman Santa Fé.

After the Fall of France, Le Fantasque was assigned to the Vichy French 10th DCT (Division de Contre-Torpilleurs, "destroyer division"), with her sister ships Le Malin and L'Audacieux, based at Dakar. On 23 September 1940, the Allies attacked Dakar. Le Fantasque sailed through the harbour, setting smoke screens and protecting the stronger French units. She took fire from the British ships and aircraft, but was not damaged.

Shortly after Operation Torch, French West Africa and its fleet, including Le Fantasque and her sister Le Terrible, returned to the Allies. In March 1943, she underwent refitting in Boston, repairing damage, adding radars and ASDIC, and reinforcing her anti-aircraft armament. After the refit, she was reclassified as a light cruiser.

On 9 September 1943 she took part in the Salerno landings (Operation Avalanche), providing fire support for the landing force.

On the night of 13–14 September, she landed 250 commandos at Ajaccio, along with ammunition and weapons for the maquis.

On 24 December 1943, she intercepted the German merchant ship Nicoline Maersk, forcing the freighter to run aground near Tortosa, Spain.

In 1944, the 10th DCT, along with her sister-ships Le Terrible and Le Malin, was reconstituted to raid deep in the Adriatic, with the aim of isolating Italy from Yugoslavia. Together they defeated a German convoy just off Ist island in February 1944. On the night of 18–19 March, along with Le Terrible, she encountered a German convoy composed of the large ferry F124, the tugboat Titanic, and three Siebel ferries (SF270, SF273 and SF274); all enemy ships were sunk except for Titanic, which managed to escape to Kyparissia.
On 17 June, along with Le Terrible, she sank the tanker Giuliana and damaged the R5 and R14.
On 15 August, the 10th DCT took part in Operation Dragoon, the Allied landing in Provence.
Between 1945 and 1946, she served in Indochina. In 1950, she was placed in the reserve, reclassified as a "swift escort" and received the pennant number D610. In 1953, she was towed by tug to Toulon, where she was used as a floating barracks. On 2 May 1957, she was struck from the Navy list, renamed Q98, and sold for scrap.

HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY (Ukrainian: Гетьман Сагайдачний) is a frigate of the Ukrainian Navy that was originally built as a patrol ship of Nerei / Menzhinskiy-class. Homeported at Odessa (since March 2014), she is the flagship of the Ukrainian Navy.
Built at the Zalyv Shipbuilding yard, the ship was intended to be used by the Soviet Border Troops as KIROV However, on 4 July 1993, the newly named (after Petro Konashevych-Sahaidachny) HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY raised the flag of the Ukrainian Navy. She was given the identification number of U130.
In 1994, HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY set sail for France to take part in the 50th anniversary commemorations of the Allied invasion of Normandy.
In 1995, HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY visited Abu Dhabi during the "Idex-95" exhibitions. With KOSTIANTYN OLSHANSKY, the frigate visited Norfolk, Virginia in the United States.
The vessel has also visited ports in Algeria, Bulgaria, Egypt, Georgia, Gibraltar, Israel, Portugal, Russia and Turkey.
Between November 2006 and November 2007, she underwent major repairs in Mykolaiv at a cost of 15 million hryvnia.
In 2008, HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY took part in "Operation Active Endeavour" in the Mediterranean Sea.
In February 2013, it was announced that she would be taking part in NATO's "Operation Ocean Shield", an anti-piracy campaign off the Horn of Africa.
HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY joined the Naval Force of the European Union (EUNAVFOR) in early January 2014 for anti-piracy operations. As she refueled in Greece, while Russian forces seized control of Crimea, Russian Senator Igor Morozov claimed on 1 March 2014 that the ship's crew had defected to Russia and raised the Russian flag. Shortly afterwards, independent news organizations reported that the ship was still flying the Ukrainian flag in port in Crete. The commander of the ship confirmed that the crew had never defected to the Russians. It arrived in Odessa under the Ukrainian flag on March 5. On 14 March, the ship encountered a Russian naval group in Ukrainian territorial waters. As HETMAN SAHAYDACHNIY approached the group, they withdrew into international waters. In September, the frigate entered Odessa to undergo repairs.
2016 In service.
