?The Storming of Schinaass, Jan 3rd 1810?

?The Storming of Schinaass, Jan 3rd 1810?.Coloured aquatint by I Clark after R Temple, 65th (2nd Yorkshire, North Riding) Regiment of Foot published by W Haines, 1813.In 1809 the Bombay Presidency organized an expedition the Persian Gulf to suppress piracy. The fortress of the Schinaass [sic] surrendered after a heavy, night long bombardment.Between 1793 and 1815 Britain was almost constantly at war with France. The ships, sailors and soldiers needed to safeguard trade were in short supply, so the activities of pirates grew. For example, Arabian pirates often attacked merchant shipping in the Persian Gulf. This led the Bombay Presidency to launch an attack on the pirate settlements there in late 1809. As well as Presidency troops, the 47th and 65th Regiments of Foot played an important role. Two more joint Army-Navy campaigns against Gulf pirates followed in 1819 and 1821. Date: 1810
