Captain William Howe Mulcaster, Royal Navy

Mulcaster had earned a reputation for courageous and intelligent conduct well before he joined Yeo's detachment. In 1806 he participated in a cutting - out expedition on the Spanish coast that prompted Earl St. Vincent, one of Britain's most distinguished admirals, to refer to the pride he felt at seeing one of his students prosper. Mulcaster attained the rank of captain during the war and was later knighted. He was also the commander of the British force that attacked French Creek and the gunboat squadron which shadowed General Wilkinson's army down the St. Lawrence, William Mulcaster was determined to inflict damage on the Americans invading Lower Canada
