Pillars

  • Present at Launch - Yes
  • Present at Trafalgar - Yes
  • Present Pre-1923 - Yes
  • Rarity - Not in themselves rare, but they form a major part of Victory’s unique deck structure.
  • Completeness - Almost 100%

Many of Victory’s 173 pillars are original to launch. They sit upright between decks and provide additional support for the deck beams.

A few original pillars in the hold were removed to make room for a table for the Royal United Services Museum model of the battle of Trafalgar when the ship was docked for repairs in 1857.
