The captain opposed the referral of the convoy in compliance with its orders. Freya had with its 40 guns no chance against the English 130. and after 30 min. The captain chose to strike the flag but she was given back later that year.and on Sep. 7th 1807 she was Captured along with the rest of the Danish fleet Michael Jason, Erebus and Terror, Mirabell61 and 7 others 10 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
