Launched in 1817, HMS Trincomalee belonged to a class of 38-gun Fifth Rates which were standard in the Napoleonic Wars, and can justly claim to be the last of Nelson's frigates. Two centuries later, it is Britain oldest warship still afloat, and it now serves as a museum. Containing more than 200 photographs, this guide offers a tour of the ship, from bow to stern and deck by deck. In the text, Wyn Davies comments on the importance of the ship, both in her own time and now as a symbol of the nation's rich naval history.
