HMS Trincomalee History

The HMS Trincomalee was laid down at Wadia shipyard in Bombay in 1816 and launched on 12 October 1917. The HMS Trincomalee was equipped with 38-guns. The HMS Trincomalee was built mainly with Malabar teak. The Trincomalee reached Britain in 1819 in Portsmouth harbour. In 1845 she was commissioned for service as a coal transporter. The Trincomalee was then modified and reclassified as a 26-gun Corvette. In 1847 she served in the West Indies. She also served as a Drill Ship for Royal Naval Volunteers. Between 1860 and 1897 she was moored, mast-less in Sunderland then West Hartlepool and finally in Southampton. The philanthropist G Wheatly Cobb bought HMS Trincomalee and renamed it HMS Foudroyant after Vice Admiral Lord Nelson's famous ship. The Trincomalee was moored in Falmouth and later at Portsmouth. In 1932 she was managed by the Implacable Committee of the Society for Nautical Research. During the war the vessel was taken over for the training of Sea Cadets. She was returned to Royal Navy and became an adventure training base for Sea Cadets and other youth groups. The Trincomalee was moved north during the second world war to prevent her from being attacked by submarines. In 1987 the Trincomalee was transferred to Hartlepool. The restoration started in 1990 and the ship is currently open to daily visits to the public.
