Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory, now part of the fleet of the National Museum of the Royal Navy, has received a gift of £100,000 from the Society for Nautical Research (SNR) towards the costs of ongoing research and restoration.

The gift was presented by the Society’s chairman, Admiral Sir Kenneth Eaton, to First Sea Lord Admiral Sir Philip Jones and Chairman of the National Museum, former First Sea Lord Admiral Sir Jonathon Band, on board HMS Victory.

This latest very generous gift is further evidence of the SNR’s commitment to conserving this outstanding piece of our maritime heritage

Admiral Jones said: “HMS Victory is recognisable around the world as a symbol of Britain’s maritime heritage, and for those of us serving in the Royal Navy today, a symbol of the values and standards that continue to guide us.

“This latest very generous gift is further evidence of the SNR’s commitment to conserving this outstanding piece of our maritime heritage.”

The SNR has contributed £1.25 million to the ship since 1994.
