The most famous British period ship The HMS Victory was laid down on the 23rd of July 1759 and launched on the 7th of May 1765 at Chatham Dockyard (Kent). HMS Victory was launched in 1765 at Chatham Dockyard and was commissioned in 1778…… HMS Victory is a 104-gun ship of the line of the Royal Navy, built between 1759 and 1765. She is the oldest naval ship still in commission. She sits in dry dock in Portsmouth as a museum ship.
In March 1778 John Lindsay was appointed her very first captain, but he was transferred to captain HMS Prince George in May 1778 when Admiral the Honorable Augustus Keppel decided to raise his flag in Victory. She was commissioned in May 1778 under the command of Rear Admiral John Campbell (1st Captain) and Captain Jonathan Faulknor (2nd Captain), with the flag of Admiral Keppel. She was armed with smooth bore, cast iron cannon 30 � 32 and 42 pounders (15 and 19 kg), 30 � 24 pounders (11 kg), and 40 � 12 pounders (5 kg). Later she also carried two carronade guns, firing 68 lb (31 kg) round shot.
First Battle of Ushant
Keppel put to sea from Spithead on July 9, 1778, with a force of thirty ships of the line and, on July 23, sighted a French fleet of twenty-nine ships 100 miles (160 km) west of Ushant. The French Admiral, Louis Guillouet, comte d'Orvilliers, who had orders to avoid battle, was cut off from Brest but retained the weather gage. Two of his ships escaped into port leaving him with twenty-seven. The two fleets manoeuvred during shifting winds and a heavy rain squall until a battle became inevitable with the British more or less in column and the French in some confusion. However, the French managed to pass along the British line with their most advanced ships. At about a quarter to twelve Victory opened fire on the Bretagne of 110 guns, which was being followed by the Ville de Paris of 90 guns. The British van escaped with little loss but Sir Hugh Palliser's rear division suffered considerably. Keppel made the signal to follow the French but Palliser did not conform and the action was not resumed. Keppel was court martialled and cleared and Palliser criticised by an inquiry before the affair turned into a party political squabble.
. She was the fifth ship to be bear that name. The battle honours include: Armada (1588), Dover (1652), Portland (1653), Gabbard (1653), Schevening (1653), Four Days Battle (1666), Orfordness (1666), Sole Bay (1672), Schooneveld (1673), Texel (1673), Barfleur (1692), Ushant (1781), St. Vincent (1797), Trafalgar (1805). She became famous when in October of 1805, she served under Vice-Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson during the battle of Trafalgar. She carried 104 guns at Trafalgar and was manned by a crew of 821 ready for battle and sworn to defend King & Country at any cost. The gunners could fire and reload all guns within 90 seconds and fired solid rounds that could penetrate 3 feet of oak causing high casualty numbers due to wooden splinters.

Handcrafted Model Ships is proud to offer a collection of models inspired by the legendary pirate history, taken from the Golden Age of Piracy

.. According to history, when the first time was the time of the cruise in the Caribbean there are many pirates who controlled the waters in the Caribbean region. So do not be surprised at that many pirates plundered merchant ships passing through the area to look for the treasure that brought the merchant ships. Sometimes they did not hesitate to sink merchant ships they had robbed. Of course, this resulted in huge losses to the owners of merchant ships that. It can be found in some of Britain's trade documents.

It was the golden age of pirates, because many pirates are active. Most of the pirates are using the "jolly roger". Jolly roger is the name for the flag used by the pirates. Usually a black cloth with a picture of a skull but sometimes wear a red cloth. After robbing usually pirates buried their treasure in the sand or stored in the secret room. Their goal to save their captured treasure in the hope they can be taken by one day or for their descendants. So it is not strange there is a treasure box in various parts of the Caribbean. This era also many competing pirates to expand his realm. This is reflected in the film Pirates of the Caribbean. Or they rob pirate treasure belonging to another.
At this time there is also a legend of Davy Jones. Davy Jones was a pirate who was cursed by the gods to become guardian of the sea because the sea god deceived and ultimately served to sink the ships that sail the moment. So there is the myth of Davy Jones's Locker, where the ship sunk Davy Jones.


* SOLEIL ROYAL, A famous Ship in French naval history

The French SOLEIL ROYAL was named in honour of the Sun KING, Louis XIV. The SOLEIL ROYAL was one of the most powerful warships of her time. She was launched 1669 in Brest and carried 104 cannons. As flagship of the revitalized French Navy, brought into being by Minister of Marine Jean Baptiste Colbert, she was sumptuously decorated with wooden carvings, depicting a variety of motifs emblematic of the French monarch. The taffrail was embellished with a rendering of the sun god drawn across the sky by a team of horses, while the ornate figurehead showed a seahorse flanked by winged maidens.
In July 1690, at the battle of Beachy Head, admiral Tourville led the French fleet of 70 ships to a victory against the united English and Dutch fleet of 57 ships. Two years later the situation was less favorable. On 20 May 1692, at the battles of Barfleur and La Hogue, a French fleet with only 44 ships met the English and Dutch with twice as many ships off Pointe de Barfleur. Some the French ships could escape but the SOLEIL ROYAL was so strongly damaged that she ran aground when trying to escape to Cherbourg. On 23 May 1692 she was destroyed by English fireships.
