HMS Victory was launched in 1765.
In 1805 she was the flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar.
In 1824 she became a harbour ship.
From 1889 to 1904 she was fitted out as a Telegraphy School.
During the First World War Royal Navy personnel, who trained at the Portsmouth Navy base, are recorded as having served on HMS Victory; this is due to the Navy tradition of personnel who are based ashore still being recorded as being on a ship.
In 1922 she was moved to dry dock.
More information on the ships long history can be found on her Wikipedia page.
