HMS Victory - Admral Lord Nelson's Ship

The HMS "Victory" was launched in 1765, and, most famously, was Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship during the battle of Trafalgar against the French fleet. Nelson was fatally shot by a French Muscat as he stood on the deck of this ship, which is now in dry dock in the "Portsmouth Historic Dockyard".

Behind her, in this photo, is the building containing the remains of the HMS "Mary Rose".
