Example text

Copies of the original plans, usually amounting to several sheets for each ship, can be ordered from the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England. The NMM’s historic Brass Foundry building at the old Woolwich Arsenal houses one of the world’s most extensive collections of ship plans, dating back many centuries into the age of pure sail propulsion. It also has an extensive collection of ship photographs. The expert staff at the Brass Foundry, in particular Andrew Choong Han Lin, has been extremely helpful in selecting and crisply duplicating the plan sets needed for this volume.

The 1875 proposal was apparently vetoed by the Cabinet. Focal area defence was part of a larger strategy. French bases abroad would be attacked so that they could not be used as bases for commerce raiders. The troopships used for such attacks would be convoyed, and some other unusually valuable ships might also be protected directly. The issue of convoy was whether such protection could be or would be extended to the mass of merchant shipping. The conclusion was clearly that such extension was impossible and unaffordable.

Elevations usually do not show the masts beyond a few feet above the decks (in many cases the funnels are also truncated). For most of the ships in this book, rigging and/or sail plans survive, but where they did not, the masting and rigging was deduced from that of the closest contemporary classes and from photographs. Thus the availability of high-quality photography is vital to producing plans as accurate as possible. For the first volume in this series, there was ample aerial photography, but aerial views of Victorian era ships are, understandably, extremely rare.
