Historical Information

The HMS Vanguard 74 Gun Ship Of The Line was Horatio Nelson's flagship at the famous Battle of the Nile during August, 1798. She was designed by Slade, who also designed the HMS Victory, and was one of the fourteen 3rd rate, 74 gun ships which formed the Arrogant Class. The ship was ordered on December 9, 1779. The keel was laid down at Deptford on October 16, 1782. During this time, Britain was not at war so her build went ahead very slowly. She was launched on March 6, 1787.
