Footnotes

  • HMS Colossus The first of the "Colossus" Class, 2nd class Batleships.

MklV breech loading guns in her central citadel turrets and the first to be constructed all of steel. Her career was spent with the Mediterranean Fleet until she was transferred to the Coastguard in 1893, before joining the reserve in 1901 and then becoming tender to HMS Excellent. Sold out of the Navy in 1906, she was broken up in 1908.
