History of the HMS Warrior 

HMS Warrior, Portsmouth is located in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and is a 40 gun steam-powered frigate built for the Royal Navy in 1859-1861.  

HMS Warrior was launched in 1860, at a time of empire and Britain's dominance in trade and industry, Warrior was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet.  

Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful warship of her day and had a lasting influence on naval architecture and design. Work and life on board reflected both the changes the Royal Navy experienced as it evolved into a professional service and shifts in Victorian society.  

Built to counter the latest French battleship, Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet by igniting a new era in naval technology, she soon became outdated. After 22 years' service, Warrior's hull was to be used as a depot, floating school and an oil jetty.  

Painstakingly restored in Hartlepool and back home in Portsmouth since 1987, Warrior is a unique survivor of the once formidable Victorian Black Battlefleet.  

Warrior was first commissioned into the Royal Navy on 1st August 1861 whilst still being fitted out on the River Thames. The Honourable Arthur Cochrane was her first Captain.  The ship's crew comprised 50 officers and 656 ratings in 1863, divided into 34 messes, each with up to 18 men squashed into the space between two guns. The officers berthed in the rear of the ship in small individual cabins; the wardroom was also the officers' mess. The captain had two spacious, well-furnished cabins.
