Sidenote: Although the Victory is best beloved for having been Nelson’s flagship at Trafalgar, she was also Sir John Jervis’s flagship at the Battle of Cape St. Vincent, for which he was made the Earl St. Vincent.
Preserved in drydock in Portsmouth today, she is the oldest commissioned warship in existence (the oldest commissioned warship still afloat being theUSS Constitution, in Boston).
