DateEvent
(1841), Master George William Nembhard, East Indies (including the first Anglo-Chinese war)
1 June 1844
- 31 July 1844
Commanded by Lieutenant Charles Wright Bonham, troop ship, East Indies. Uncertain about this; according to Navy Lists Sapphire was commanded at this time by various Masters (with Bonham as Additional Lieutenant in Cornwallis), but Bonham's service record gives this service in this vessel, and as Lieutenant he could not have been serving under a Master
