For the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar, Great Britain issued a set of stamps, designed after a panorama painting made by William Heat of the battle: https://collections.rmg.co.uk/collectio ... 02512.html

The smallest vessel in Nelson’s fleet during the battle was the ENTREPRENANTE, there was only one cutter in the fleet so she must be depicted on three stamps of the series. The 1st, and the two 42p stamps.
On 2 December 1799, the British merchant ship ACHILLES captured the French privateer corvette ENTREPENANTE, of 18 guns and 130-195 men, off San Domingo in an engagement that was particularly sanguinary for the French.
