Nelson's Victory, Portsmouth

HMS Victory is something special, it represents the English spirit against the foreign invader, in this case Napoleon, and one of its greatest Admirals, Lord Nelson. It has taken a long time to restore this great ship and is still being restored from the the original Oak trees that Nelson help plant over 200 years ago. This is a must visit if one is a tourist or a traveller through English history !

I stood on the very spot "Here Nelson Fell" with a British Navy Lieutenant and also visited below decks where Nelson was taken to die. Saw many other parts of the beautiful old ship while there. I was on my way with the U.S. Navy Band from London as we were going to Omaha Beach to play for a June 6 D-day ceremony honoring our dead there from the 1944 invasion. To this day, I have a very nice picture hanging on one of our bedroom walls of myself and that Lieutenant as we chatted before touring the vessel. A very wonderful experience for me way back in June of 1951.

ABSOLUTE BRILLIANT DAY OUT DOWN ON THE HMS VICTORY

HMS Victory is the most popular war ship in the world.
I lived in Portsmouth a couple of years ago, and I actually went on a tour around HMS Victory. Its amazing. The most amazing part of the tour was learning about her history. I cant believe that this country has such amazing history. I will always be interested in HMS Victory and Lord Nelson.

I own two large (20" X 24") color pictures of the HMS Victory. One is listed as the first journey in 1778, and the other is the last journey in 1922. Both though show the commander as the Right Honourable Earl Beatty Admiral of the Fleet. Any clarification as to the listing of Lord Nelson as commander??? Thanks for any response JIM

Great pictures a truly wonderful site for history homework. Thanks

our greatest thanks 5/5 A1

if the victory is allowed to be sold, England should hold her head in shame.

the video of Victory's "broadside" was simply stunning. (no pun intended). I never would have thought it possible. I finished building a model of HMS Victory just last year, after 8 1/2 years of steady work on her. She now sits in a 4 sided glass case in my home.

Could I use a picture of the victory for my GCSE ICT, I need to obtain your permission to use the image. I would be very grateful.

My mother visited the HMS Victory and purchased a guide book. However, on her return to the USA she lost the book and wishes to purchase a replacement. Please advise.

See this article from the Daily Mail on the possible sale of HMS Victory

i keep hearing the the victory has been sold yet i cant find out if it is true or not, cant any one tell the public what's going on........
Where can I find the boats the Victory had? Supposedly there was one large cutter with a crane to transport, launch and retrieve the anchor. That is still missing on my model! Ingolf in Australien E-mail: schmacke @ tadaust.org.au

i am building a scale model of the victory and have found your site a gr8 help in research and photos

Ciao, sono Filippo, un siciliano appassionato di navi e modellismo. Ho montato la Victory, il mio capolavoro, e sogno di poter visitare Portsmouth. Mi avete emozionato, grazie...

(Roughly Translated - Hello, I'm Philip, a Sicilian lover of model ships. I mounted the Victory, my masterpiece, and dream of being able to visit Portsmouth. You made me excited, because ...)

its a great place to immerse yourself in old ships and history, I recommend it

very useful site

I JOINED THE NAVY IN 1952, DURING THE FIRST WEEK OUR CLASS WAS TAKEN ON A TOUR OF THE VICTORY, I REMEMBER THE CHIEF TELLING US A TREE TRUNK WAS HOLLOWED OUT BY DROPPING HOT CANON BALLS IN IT AND THEN SUNK THROUGH THE KEEL TO SUPPLY WATER ON DECK, A SEA STORY OF THE BEST IN NAVAL TRADITION
I am an electrician and install backup generators in the USA...recently installing a generator at a resident whose father built a full replica (3yrs) of the victory which is housed in a beautiful glass case...This ships details stagger the mind...I've seen a lot of model ships in my day and nothing compares to this ship in any way...ps its not or ever will be for sale so don't inquire :0)

USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned war ship AFLOAT, but, HMS Victory is the oldest in years. Being from the other side of the pond, the USA, I must say that Victory is indeed the more awe inspiring!

A great ship led by a great man. It stands as proud today as it did at Trafalgar. a memorial to a great man who did his duty for his country, pity people don't have those morals now.

a great day out

I visited the Flagship USS Constitution or 'Old Ironsides' as she is called in Boston, USA. We were told by the Crew that she was the oldest commissioned warship in the world and I was able to tell them that HMS VICTORY owns that title as she was commissioned in 1778 21 years earlier. I don't think they believed me though.

verry good

Great site! Have you any images of ships that Saumarez sailed in full sail? Thanks, Christian

I am making a mid-section model of the Victory and this site was the very best for the outside coloring detail.

THIS WEBSITE IS VERY USEFUL.
YOU SHOULD HAVE MORE PICTURES OF INSIDE THE HMS VICTORY

It's British, It's History, Excellent!

Are there any pictures of the HMS Victory's interior?

Y2U - The time we went around they would not allow it

What a beautiful ship!!!

Wasn't expecting to find this many pics. good stuff.

I've been on the HMS Victory and I've seen It all. When I grow up I'm going to be an Historian and study about Nelson and his ships - Kerenza

Wonderful pictures!!!

I got all the info I needed for my homework thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow !!

Such a brilliant site, it makes me proud to say I am a citizen of Portsmouth

I would like to have seen some pictures from below decks otherwise first class

 

Y2U - Fair point, at the time we went around visitors were not allowed to take pictures inside, which is a great shame, so many people want to know more about this great ship

Quality page

Its a great photo of the cannon.

It has LOTS of GOOD pics but it might need a bit more info about the ship or Lord Nelson

Y2U - Thanks for your comments. There is a biography about Lord Nelson here http://nelson.y2u.co.uk/ and information about HMS Victory here http://nelson.y2u.co.uk/NL-HMS-Victory.htm

yeah

Portsmouth was bombed incessantly during WW2
What became of HMS Victory during World War 2 Ron

 

Y2U - HMS Victory was closed to visitors in the war and the masts and rigging taken down. But on the 10th March 1941 a 500lb bomb fell into the dry dock and blew a 8ft hole in her.  It apparently helped to reduce the damp in the ship with all that fresh air. After the war they carried on restoring her and the public was able to visit her again. Victory is what you call a survivor :-)

 

21st October 2005 was the 200 Anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar - Read more about this decisive battle here
