Service during the War

On May 2 1758, the ship was part of the French squadron who set sail from Rochefort for Louisbourg under the command of comte du Chaffault de Besné. This squadron transported French infantry to reinforce Louisbourg. On June 10, the squadron landed the troops at Baie Sainte-Anne 80 km northwest of Louisbourg and then sailed for Québec where it arrived on June 29. In the mid-September, du Chaffault sailed from Québec for France with his squadron. On October 27, it met Boscawen's squadron returning to Great Britain but after a brief cannonade, the two fleets separated. The French squadron reached Brest on November 12.
