The Royal Navy fleet has been left with only one ship of the line, new figures have revealed.
New figures have shown that HMS Victory is the only commissioned ship of the line in the ENTIRE fleet, the lowest number in centuries.
We spoke to Asda based defence commentator Craig who assured us:
“This is a result of centuries of neglect when it comes to our ship of the line fleet, we couldn’t do Trafalgar again even if we wanted to!”
HMS Victory is a 104-gun first-rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, ordered in 1758, laid down in 1759 and launched in 1765. She is best known for her role as Lord Nelson’s flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805.
