HMS Sceptre was a 64-gun third-rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, launched on 8 June 1781 at Rotherhithe.[1] Shortly after completion she was sent out to the Indian Ocean to join Vice-Admiral Sir Edward Hughes's squadron. She arrived in time for the Battle of Trincomalee in 1782. This was the fourth battle of a bloody campaign between Vice-Admiral Hughes and the French Admiral Suffren's squadron.[citation needed]

The following year, she took part in the Battle of Cuddalore (1783), the final battle in the East Indies campaign. She was then laid up for the peace.[citation needed] In 1794, under the command of Commodore John Ford, Sceptre assisted in the capture of Port-au-Prince, Haiti.[citation needed]

On 19 June 1795, Sceptre earned her second Battle Honour in Vice Admiral Sir George Elphinstone's squadron, when she captured a squadron of 19 Dutch East Indiamen in the Battle of Muizenberg.

There is one near Tulbagh too. It is on top of a mountain there. It was used to signal that a ship was  in the bay at Cape Town Harbour. Then the farmers knew they could take their produce to market.

See: The history of Tulbagh. Recently published and released in English.
