HMS Nile of the Mediterranean Squadron

The Nile was a steel armoured battleship of the early Hamilton Programme and was completed for sea in 1890. She was built at Pembroke Dockyard and engined by Messrs Maudsley, Son & Field. The Nile and her sister ship the Trafalgar were the immediate predecessors of the Royal Sovereign Class of battleship and carried their heavy guns in armoured turrets. In 1896 the Nile was commanded by Captain Orford Churchill.

HMS Nile in Dry Dock at Malta 1896

Here we have an end on view of the Nile of the Mediterranean Fleet in 1896, with her bows towards us, taken when the ship was lying in dock at Malta. The Nile was one of the most powerful battleships afloat in the 1890's and like her sister ship Trafalgar, the Nile was a turret ship. The Nile owed her name to Nelson's great victory over Brueys in 1798. This Nile's predecessor was a 90 gun line of battleship, built in 1839 and was still in existence serving in the Mersey as a Mercantile Marine officers' training ship under the name of Conway in 1896.
