 The Black Watch - The West Indies - Guadaloupe
Government having resolved to employ the seven new companies in an expedition against Martinique and Guadaloupe, 200 of the 840 men, embodied at Perth, were immediately embarked at Greenock for the West Indies, under the convoy of the Ludlow Castle, for the purpose of joining the armament lying in Carlisle Bay, destined for that service.
In a political point of view, the possession of Martinique was an object of greater importance than Guadaloupe, as it afforded, from its spacious harbor, a secure retreat to the enemy's fleets.
On the expedition reaching the western division of the island, it was resolved to make a general attack by sea upon the citadel, the town, and the batteries by which it was defended.

While she was building, Dupuy de Lôme, the brilliant young French naval constructor, was working at Lairds studying the building of iron ships for his Admiralty and regarded the Guadaloupe as the finest and strongest iron warship at sea and he advised the French Navy to copy her.
Dupuy de Lôme’s enthusiasm for Guadaloupe was shared by her first Captain, Edward Phillip Charlwood, RN, who joined the Guadaloupe in 1841 and stood by her till completion, remaining in command for nearly two years, which included the Mexican expedition against Yucatan when she was under fire from both ships and forts.
Charlwood finished his evidence by saying that Guadaloupe was a better gun platform than Salamander, a smaller Symmonds designed wooden Sloop, and that iron ships were safer in a gale because they were more buoyant.
