Débarquement des assiégeants

English: In both sieges the attackers made their initial landings in this cove. In 1745 the French defended the cove with only a small detachment but in 1757 they built and garrisoned extensive fieldworks here. The following year 1,000 French withstood an amphibious assault by 3,300 British until several boatloads of troops landed to the left of these defences and forced a French retreat.

French: Lors des deux sièges, les attaquants débarquèrent en premier ici, dans cette anse. En 1745. les Français n'avaient qu'un seul petit détachement pour défendre l'anse, mais en 1757, ils y aménagèrent l'importantes places fortes, qu'ils dotèrent de garnisons. L'année suivante, un millier de Français soutinrent l'assaut amphibie de 3 300 Britanniques, mais des renforts arrivés par plusieurs navires débarquèrent à la gauche des défenses des Français, forçant ceux-ci à battre en retraite.
