HMS VICTORY

Launched in Chatham in 1765, HMS Victory served in the American War of Independence, the French Revolutionary War and the Napoleonic War. She is most famous as the flagship of Admiral Horatio Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, when the Royal Navy defeated a larger combined French and Spanish force. Nelson died on board. Victory has been in dry dock since 1922 and is the world's oldest naval ship still in commission.  Learn the origin of 'a square meal' and 'not enough room to swing a cat'.  Be amazed at the conditions in which sailors lived and fought in the early 19thC.
