The Battle of Solebay (28 May 1672)
I wish that I could find what fireships accompanied the Allied fleet at Solebay and what their squadron assignments were. The sources that I have for the Third Anglo-Dutch War seem to omit mention of fireships for the Allies. Thankfully, for the Dutch, Brandt's biography of De Ruyter does list fireships and where they were assigned.
