  • HMS Alexandra, commissioned at Chatham on 2 January 1877 as flagship of the Mediterranean Fleet, is seen here in 1880 under the command of Sir Geoffrey Phipps Hornby, Commander-in-Chief of the Mediterranean Fleet since 1877. In 1878, Hornby led HMS Alexandra through the Dardanelles in an attempt to deter Russia from advancing on Constantinople during the Russo-Turkish War (1877-1878) and she would later take part in the bombardment of Alexandria in 1882.
