H.M.S. Victory at anchor off Portsmouth, serving as a harbour ship. Her career included the First and Second Battles of Ushant and St Vincent, with a three-year refit (1800-3) before the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. In 1922 she was moved into a dry dock at Portsmouth for preservation as a museum ship. Today she is the flagship of the First Sea Lord and is the world's oldest naval ship still in commission.
