About the Juno:
Built in the 1780s, she served throughout the Napoleonic wars.
In 1793, she was with Lord Hood at the Siege of Toulon. Here she achieved fame by sailing into the harbour, not realising it was again under French control; she managed to escape despite fire from the many batteries protecting the anchorage.

In 1794, she took part in the famous attack on the martello tower at Corsica.

In 1799, she was part of the Anglo Russian landings in Holland.

In 1805, she was part of the inshore squadron under Nelson, watching Cadiz.
