Sir Wm Sydney Smith (1764-1840)
Smith was an individualist with a flair for guerrilla warfare. He was frigate captain at the start of the French Revolutionary War and in 1795 was captured on the coast of France during a cutting-out expedition and imprisoned in Paris (see PAF3568) until early 1798, largely because the French thought he was also engaged in espionage: at this he was also accomplished, aided by his fluent French. He was then sent to the Mediterranean where he clashed with both Nelson and Lord Keith, neither of whom appreciated his high-handed independence and failure to consult.
