Catalogue Note

HMS Warrior was the first British iron-hulled warship, launched in 1860. This steam-powered frigate is an excellent example of pioneering 19th century naval engineering, and as such greatly interested Sir John. She was restored in the 1980s after years of fundraising led by Sir John, the Manifold Trust and the Maritime Trust. HMS Warrior is now stationed in Portsmouth harbour, where she has served as a museum ship since 1987.
