Captain Hector Cameron

From the Royal naval biography:

"A successful attack [in the Peninsular War] was made upon the island of Santa Clara [on August 26, 1813], at the mouth of the harbour of St. Sebastian, at three o'clock on the morning of the 27th, by the boats of the squadron under the command of Lieutenant the Hon. James Arbuthnot, of H. M. S. Surveillante. The boats were manned by the seamen and marines, and by a party of soldiers under the command of Captain Cameron*, of the 9th regiment."

*Lt. Colonel Hector Cameron
