Irish Central used a painting of the HMS Glendower to accompany their article about “forgotten white slaves” from 2012 to 2016. It states that this ship was used to bring “human cargo to South American[sic] and the Indies.” But the HMS Glendower was not a slave ship. In fact it was used from 1821 to 1824 to suppress the slave trade.
