East of the Light House Point (See map.)
Between Black and White Points (See map.)
The sandy beach at Kennington Cove, looking east. The shoulder of land
we see is Cap Rouge. "Wolfe's Rock" is just beyond Cap Rouge and it
marks the spot ("A") where the British gained their first foothold. They
were then able to sweep up, inland, to the top of the rise, and then down
on the backs of the French which had entrenched themselves and their
cannon midway up the rise (the green patch in the picture; "F" on map),
so, to face the beach. Once the French were cleared from their trenches,
it seems plain, the bulk of the British force was able to make a relatively
easy landing on this beach.
