Riots and breakdown of discipline in Toulon during French Revolution

Greetings fellow members,

Does anyone of you have any sources about what happened in Toulon at the very beginning of the French Revolution? During that period the city is most famous because of the royalist turnover and opening the city to the English and later being conquered by the Revolutionaries (and Bonaparte's part of it)

However, I am more interested in what happened before. About the roles of François Hector d’Albert, comte de Rioms (who was arrested by trying to keep the riots of1789 in line), his successor - Jean-Baptiste de Glandevès du Castellet (almost murdered by the crowd?). Also I've read that the mob was hunting down naval officers in the ports and that commander of the squadron (Who specifically? Can't find his name) was hanged alongside with is 3 officers.

Any other information about Toulon in 1789-1790 (or it's Atlantic counterpart - the port in Brest) would be extremely helpful. The bigger picture is the negative effect the Revolution had on the French Navy. The best sources would be in English and on-line.
