Die Victory ist ja in excellentem Zustand
Ich konnte auch auf meinen Reisen an keinem "Oldy" vobei gehen
ob das die Vasa, die Pommern in Mariehamn oder die Fregatte Jylland in Dänemark waren.
Schön, dass mit soviel Engagement und Hingabe diese Zeugen der Vergangenheit
erhalten werden.

On this day in 1765 HMS Victory was floated out of Chatham Dockyard for the first time.
She has 254 years of stories to share from the time she's been afloat!
Visit her at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard for a unique look at British Naval History.
Today is the 254th anniversary of the oldest commissioned warship in the world, HMS Victory.
She was floated out of the Old Single Dock at Chatham Dockyard on this day in 1765.
She’s had an incredible journey as Nelson’s flagship and her 40th year was spent at the Battle of Trafalgar.
She’s also where Nelson lost his life and you can see the spot where he fell on her top deck.
Now at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard she's ready to teach you all about key moments in British naval history!
