Other Interesting Points - HMS Ganges was built in Bombay in 1821 and was the last sailing ship to serve as a sea-going flagship....she was also known as Tenedos III, Indus V & Impregnable III. HMS Ganges was eventually broken up in Plymouth in 1930....with the teak being used to produce items such as this lovely little barrel.
