The Duke of Wellington Firing as Flagship at Portsmouth

The glory of the old Duke of Wellington - the once famous flagship of Sir Charles Napier. Relegated to harbour service as one of the depot ships for berthing the men of the Portsmouth Dockyard Reserve, and shorn of her towering masts and trim square-set yards she looked very different from this picture taken in the latter half of the 19th century. The photograph shows the Duke in her last year of active service as flagship to the Commander-in-Chief at Portsmouth, dressed in bunting in honour of the Queen's Birthday.

Charles James Haynes and crew members of HMS Duke of Wellington.

Contributed by his grandson: My grandfather served on many ships during the period of 1890 to 1922 these are some photos of him and some of his shipmates on the Victory, Duke of Wellington and Macedonia. He received a bounty payment I believe this was following the engagement of the AMV Macedonia with some German colliers off the Falklands.
