~ HMS Trafalgar ~

HMS Trafalgar was one of two Trafalgar class battleships commissioned in 1890 and 1891, the other being HMS Nile. The ship was
designed as an improved version of existing battleships with greater displacement and a thicker armoured belt amidships. Trafalgar
saw active service as a battleship from 1890 to 1897 and from 1909 to 1911 when she was sold. Between these two periods as a
combatant, Trafalgar served as a guardship and as a drill ship.
