We went to Portsmouth port on 28, 29 and 30th of August 2021. This was a trip organised to show the sea, beach, port and warships to my grandchildren. Of ourse,  it is we who enjoy more than the children when we go out with them. For me it was the first trip to a warship. There were several ships in the harbour, but we chose the largest warship of Victorian period. It was huge with 40 cannons / guns on it. The length and weight of the ship will amaze anyone. Touching every part of the weaponry was a thrilling experience. Here are the interesting details in bullet points. The rest are in attached pictures.

Joined the British navy in 1861

The largest warship in the world at that time.

Name – The Warrior 

It was the pride of Queen Victoria Navy

Armoury – 40 cannons/ guns

Crew – 706 men

Length -418 feet

Speed – appr. 35 miles per hour.

It took one hour for us to go round the ship.

Three decks are there.

Now it is not in use.

Location – Portsmouth Harbour

    We had the same feelings & exhilaration when we visited Boston, USA Port to see the famous warship, very famous for Boston Tea Party.
    A thing to fondly remember the historic event!.
    Many thanks to kindle my memory.
