In September 1809 the British attacked the French on Reunion. They disembarked their troops five miles to the north of St Paul. They took the town and turned the guns in the batteries on the shipping in the bay. All of them cut their cables and drifted ashore. At the same time Sir Josias Rowley, captain of the ‘Reasonable’ appeared in the Bay with the rest of his squadron and secured the French shipping.
