Carribean: Expedition to St Juste (4) - Fort Surrenders

continued from the previous post ....

After Saigneville, the french retreated to Port Louis - with the British on their heels. Some skirmishing occurred in the town while french gained the safety of the fort. The british secured their positions on the island.  The next day two ships of the royal naval squadron accompanying the expedition bombarded the fort.

The next day facing further bombardment the french surrendered the fort, they discuss terms with the british commander ....
The british now have full control of the island.
