Post Russian Navy/Russian Squadron


The Times, September 19, 1795:

" ... The Russian Squadron now on a cruize in the North Seas, will not return home this season. They are to winter at Portsmouth, for the purpose of being ready for any emergency. The squadron is now practising at sea the giving and answering of signals with the British Fleet, in order to be more expert, if called into action together. ....."

The Times, July 5th, 1785:

" ... According to letters from Hull, the Russian frigate that put into the Humber a few days since, had after a little repair sailed again for the North; she came merely on a cruize to the narrow seas, and was obliged to make that port to repair some damage she had received in a storm, in which she had carried away her main top mast, and received other damage. ..."

The Times, January 18th, 1785:

" .... The Russian navy is far more numerouos, and better appointed than it was ever before. The armed neatrality, the apprehended struggle with the Turks, and perhaps yet more, some sure prescience of what might happen in the Scheldt, all have conspired to make the strength and resources of the Russian marine, in such a condition as well may make their enemies tremble. ...."
