The bombardment of Sveaborg, 9 August 1855

John Wilson Carmichael

A depiction of the Bombardment of Sveaborg, the culmination of the Anglo-French fleet's operations in the Baltic in the second season of the Russian (Crimean) War, 1854-1856. Sveaborg was a fortress guarding the route between St Petersburg and the Baltic Sea, and Helsinki to the east. On 6 August 1855, the Anglo-French fleet led by Admirals Richard S. Dundas in the 'Duke of Wellington' and Charles Penaud in the 'Tourville' arrived at Sveaborg and anchored in formation at an appropriate distance from the fortress, where its outdated guns could not reach them. On the morning of 9 August, they began shelling the fortress. Considerable damage was inflicted on the dockyard and enemy ships and stores. Despite the severity of the bombardment and fire, the action served little military purpose. Public opinion at home was satisfied but the effect on the course of the war against Russia was negligible.
