Footnotes

  • The screw-powered 121-gun First Rate H.M.S. Victoria was built at Portsmouth and launched in November 1859. Costing just over £150,000, she was measured at 4,116 tons and had a maximum speed under engine of about 11½ knots. Based at Portsmouth until 1864 when she went out to the Mediterranean to become flagship there, she was paid off in 1867 and thereafter served as a hulk in Portsmouth harbour until sold for scrapping in 1893. Victoria was the only steam-powered three-decker of the transitional type to boast two funnels, one either side of the mainmast, due to her engines being fired from eight boilers instead of the more usual four.
