HMS Victory Nelson's Flagship
HMS Victory stands today as the world's oldest commissioned warship.
Still manned by Officers and Ratings of the Royal Navy, the Victory has seen over 220 years of almost continuous naval service.
Best known for her role in the Battle of Trafalgar, the Victory currently has a dual role as the flagship of the Commander-in-Chief Naval Home Command and as a living museum to the Georgian navy.
Launched in 1765 at Chatham Dockyard, the Victory was commissioned in 1778 and continued in active service for the next 32 years.
In 1812 the Victory was retired from frontline duty and anchored in Portsmouth Harbour, on the south coast of England.
For the next 110 years the Victory remained at her moorings in Portsmouth Harbour fulfilling a combination of practical and ceremonial roles.
In 1922, amid fears for her continued survival, the Victory was moved into Portsmouth's Royal Naval Dockyard and placed in No2 Dry Dock.
Work then began on restoring the Victory to her 'fighting' 1805 condition.
