Philip Durham entered the Navy in 1777 and as a Midshipman saw service in America and Gibraltar. As acting Lieutenant he survived the sinking of the Royal George in 1782. He was officially promoted in December 1783 and served on various ships until 1790 when he was promoted to Commander. He achieved Post rank in 1793 and was appointed to the Anson, the largest frigate in the Navy, in 1794. It was in this ship in 1798 that he captured La Loire. He later commanded the Defiance at Trafalgar, where he was wounded. He continued his lengthy and distinguished career and in 1830 became a full Admiral and was appointed Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath. He died in 1845.
