The correct answer is D. The correct idiom is mistake X for Y. Thus, we can eliminate A and B for the incorrect mistake X as Y. E uses the incorrect mistake X to be Y, and therefore should also be discarded. As well, both B and E say his own, which incorrectly suggests the ship belonged to the French officer. Additionally, both C and E inappropriately use leaving rather than and let, making the rest of the sentence ungrammatical.
