1673.

On 21 August was fought the last battle in the third Anglo‐Dutch War. The Dutch were expecting a large convoy from the Indies and were also threatened with an invasion. De Ruyter took the initiative against a joint Anglo‐French fleet under Rupert. Dutch superiority in gunnery gave them the upper hand, though no major ships were lost on either side. But the convoy came home and the proposed landing was abandoned.
