H.M.S. Euryalus


From Geoff Hunt’s definitive series of prints ‘Fighting Sail 1773-1815’ depicting some of the naval ships of the period. The H.M.S. Euryalus was a Fifth-Rate 36-Gun Frigate. A standard design of the numerous Apollo class, Euryalus was Captain Blackwood’s command during the Trafalgar campaign, where she constantly accompanied Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory to repeat signals, and to keep the British fleet precisely informed of the location of the Franco-Spanish fleet.
