    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

          I wish I did! We don't have any Battleships any more - our last one got broken up 30 or so years ago.

          In fact, I think the US is the only nation to still have Battleships serving in their Fleet? I'm open to correction. Either way, you probably have more of a chance of seeing a Battleship than I do!

          HOWEVER - I am planning a trip to see HMS Victory and take some pictures for the site - she was the Battleship of her day - and the oldest warship still under commission to boot.

            Oh no, that's completely underwater, set into an undersea cliff with automated defensive torpedo launchers and teams of armed Frogmen to protect it. I'll try and find you a picture...

                Nope, I'm afraid not Mr Scott. I must beg to differ with you there.

                Here's a link to the Victory website:

                HMS Victory

                I quote:

                HMS VICTORY is the oldest commissioned warship in the world, and is still manned by Officers and Ratings of the Royal Navy. She is now the flagship of the Second Sea Lord and Commander in Chief Naval Home Command and lies in No 2 Dry Dock at Portsmouth Naval Base, Portsmouth. England.

                Commissioned - 1778.

                USS Constitution was launched in 1797. That's a whole 19 years later. She's the oldest commissioned ship in the US Navy, not the world.

                    That's alright - I'm not averse to the odd mistake myself (like originally putting 21 years instead of 19 in my haste - D'oh!).

                          Actually I think 1778 is a rebuild date. Every thing I have ever read about HMS Victory states she was commissioned in 1765. this date sticks in my head from building a model of her 30+ years ago.

                            Sort of:

                            Victory was designed by Thomas Slade, the Senior Surveyor of the Navy. Her keel was laid down in Chatham on 23 July 1759 and she was launched on 7 May 1765 but was not commissioned until 1778. This long period of weathering meant that the hull timbers were well seasoned, which is probably the main reason why she has survived so long. Once commissioned she became the most successful first rate ship ever built.

                            From the official website for the Victory:
