The crew of the HMS Dauntless was the crew that served under James Norrington during his time as commodore of the British Royal Navy.


Port Royal[]

After departing from England, the crew of the HMS Dauntless was stationed at Port Royal. They participated in the Raid on Port Royal where the ship had apparently not suffered significant damage. During the raid, Elizabeth was kidnapped and for the finding Norrington chose to take the HMS Interceptor, given its speed and left the Dauntless and this crew at Port Royal, but when Jack Sparrow and Will Turner took possession of the Interceptor, Norrington was forced to use the Dauntless.[1]

Isla de Muerta[]

Gillette and crew fight with the cursed crew.

Eventually, the crew managed to locate Jack and Elizabeth. Norrington decided to stay at the Isla de Muerta to save Will while attempting to ambush the crew of the Black Pearl. He, many sailors, the majority of the Royal Marines, and some officers remained in the boat while Gillette and the rest of the crew with a handful of Royal Marines remained on the ship. Unfortunately, Gillette and his men were attacked by the cursed crew. The crew suffered heavy casualties until the arrival of Norrington and the Marines. They won the battle when the curse was lifted.


After the escape of Jack Sparrow, Norrington would go on to lead his ship and crew in pursuit. The HMS Dauntless was eventually sunk by a hurricane off of Tripoli. While Norrington survived, it is unknown how much of his crew did though both Lieutenants Gillette and Theodore Groves are confirmed to have survived. The loss of the Dauntless and his crew left Norrington in disgrace, causing him to resign from the Navy and join the crew of the Black Pearl before he regained his honor by bringing Cutler Beckett the Heart of Davy Jones.[2]



The captain of the ship was James Norrington; the first officer was Gillette himself assisted by a lieutenants which one named Theodore Groves, ensigns, and midshipmen. During the Battle of the Isla de Muerta, Gillette, two ensigns and some midshipmen remained on board, Groves and the rest accompanied Norrington.


The crew also had several petty officers who commanded the sailors. The Petty Officers are recognized for some of their outfits with a blue jacket and a hat. One hundred marines commanded be a sergeant, lieutenants and captain were also the crew.
