Portsmouth, The Common Hard and HMS Warrior
Portsmouth, The Common Hard and HMS Warrior
HMS Warrior was one of two armoured frigates built for the Royal Navy in 185961. She and her sister ship HMS Black Prince were the first armour-plated, iron-hulled warships.

Warrior made a publicity tour of Great Britain in 1863 and spent her active career with the Channel Squadron. The ship was paid off in 1883 after having been in 1st class reserve since 1875. She served as a storeship and depot ship before she was assigned to the Royal Navy's torpedo training school in 1904.

The ship was converted into a floating oil jetty in 1927 and remained in that role until 1979 when her eight-year restoration began. Listed as part of the National Historic Fleet, Warrior has been a museum ship in Portsmouth since 1987.
