Dick Holland is determined to follow in the steps of his captain father and joins the frigate Gryphon as midshipman. He sails for the West Indies in 1804, with fourteen year old Dick Holden, where they put British tars and guns on to the Diamond Rock to harass the French fleet off Martinique. Although they eventually have to surrender, Dick is a hero and as a compliment is chosen to serve with Nelson in HMS Victory and he is therefore present at Trafalgar.
