    Rapparee is a cove in the North Devon town of Ilfracombe. It is the site of the shipwreck of the London which sank in 1796 in stormy weather. The ship's cargo reportedly contained gold and several African slaves who perished. There is debate over whether the remains are those of French soldiers or slaves from St Lucia.
