Diamond Rock - Franco-British Conflict historical conflict between France and Great Britain

Throughout its history, Diamond Rock was the subject of a famous Franco-British conflict.

Thus, in 1804, the English installed cannons there and declared that this rock was a warship!...

An immobile ship indeed, but which they nevertheless baptized the: "H.M.S. Diamond Rock"!

The interest was strategic: control of the Saint Lucia channel.
