Fort Geriha
The British tried to land in Geriah 34
A landing force was organised the 29th but ended in fiasco when one of the Phram’s guns exploded killing the five sepoys manning her.

Brown's squadron accidently ran into the priates 18
On both sides there was no willingness to fight. The pirates were at first seized with consternation at discovering their mistake; they had turned their prizes adrift after throwing their sails overboard, and, with only three hundred men for their joint crews, forty of them negroes, were not strong enough to engage the Bombay squadron. But England was a man who preferred fighting to running, so putting a bold face on the matter, the Cassandra ran through the fleet, firing into the Victory, the Chandos, and the Phram. The Chandos, which was towing the Phram, at once cast it loose.
