His Majesty's Ship Victory

It is most significant that the remains of the fourth ship to bear the name HMS Victory have been located. This was not Admiral Lord Nelson's - Vice-Admiral the Right Honourable the Viscount Nelson, KB - flag-ship; however, it bore the same name.

This ship sank in the English Channel in 1744. This discovery is of the utmost import to the United Kingdom and our heritage. Her Majesty's Government must take immediate steps to secure the future well-being of HMS Victory, its contents and place as a war-grave.
