Diligencia 22 Gun Spanish Corvette
The third and last of my Navwar corvettes is the 22-gun Spanish ship Diligencia. She (He) was launched in 1796 from Real Astillero de Esteiro ship yard. Again there is not much information on this ship other than ThreeDecks.org. Diligencia was captured by HMS Pique (36) and Diana (38) on December 7, 1804 and became the 22 gun 6th rate post ship HMS Ligaera.
