After taking a gun battery at Scotchman's Bay, Berry was the gun captain of a nine pound bow chaser (cannon) taken up to the cliff overlooking the bay to fire upon Spanish shipping in order to secure the unconditional surrender of the Spanish at the other side of the bay. After eight shots at one of the raiding ships, the gun unbushed, the iron bushing in the touchhole blew out. Berry needed to replace the plug in order to continue firing. However, Midshipman Wellard arrived to inform Lieutenant Bush that the Spanish have surrendered and there was no need to continue. Prize money for all!!
