HMS Victory

2009.08.12
pixel
Some of the many guns to be seen on board HMS Victory
pixel
I took lots of pictures of ropes on board - I love the patterns and textures
pixel
About 80% of the wood on board has been replaced but these floorboards look pretty authentic to me!
pixel
More rope!
pixel
Part of the on board doctor's supplies to keep the crew healthy
pixel
There were lots of these rather splendid leather buckets on board - all displaying GR in honour of King George III who was on the throne when the ship was launched
pixel
The point where Admiral Lord Nelson fell - he died later that day, below decks. I suspect these floorboards are not the exact ones he fell on - they look a little too modern!
