Sir George Cockburn emerged from the Napoleonic War the best-known British admiral since Nelson. He first came to public notice for his part in the British attack on Washington in 1814. He also escorted Napoleon to St Helena after Waterloo. His greatest impact was as the Admiralty Commissioner who presided over much of the transition of the British navy from sail to steam between 1818 and 1846.
