HMS Goliath, 74, third-rate, was in Spithead when Lieutenant Chalk and Midshipman Caldwell of Goliath and Midshipmen Simpson and Hornblower met at the Lamb Inn. During a game of Whist, Simpson accused Hornblower of cheating, whereby Hornblower challenges Simpson to a duel.

The historical HMS Goliath was launched on 19 October 1781 at Deptford Dockyard and was broken up in 1815.
