No.1. That date rings no bells I'm afraid and I am completely at a loss with no.3 given the interesting mix of countries...

None of the names seem to readily fit, but how 'bout Indefatigable?

You got it right this time. Hornblower and HMS Indefatigable made an impression on me as a teen. As did Sir Edward Pellew. The novels by C. S. Forester introduced me to a whole new world.
