EGYPT 1801

General Sir Ralph Abercromby - wounded at Alexandria 13 March 1801. died of wounds on board HMS Foudroyant 28 March 1801.
A musket-ball entered his groin, and lodged deep in the hip-joint. Despite acute pain he continued to give orders and ignored the wound. After victory had been secured he lay down on the sand in a state of exhaustion. Soldiers were seen crowding around prayering for his recovery. His wound was examined but nothing could be done. He was carried onboard the Foudroyant, where he died on the morning 28th of March.
"As his life was honourable, so his death was glorious. His memory will be recorded in the annals of his country, will be sacred to every British soldier, and embalmed in the memory of a grateful posterity."
