- "Port Oxbay was a typical Caribbean English colony. Bustling, prosperous and peaceful. Until a squadron appeared like ghosts from the fog. A squadron under French colors."
Invasion of Oxbay was an attack of the French Royal Navy on the English colony of Oxbay in the Caribbean. The French squadron came from the fog and occupied Port Oxbay in less than half-hour. All English ships and citizens were captured by the French. However, the sloop Victory, under the command of Nathaniel Hawk, managed to escape to the English island of Redmond and Hawk presonally informed governor Robert Christopher Silehard about the French invasion.
