WOODEN BARREL MADE FROM THE REMAINS OF THE ROYAL NAVAL VESSEL HMS WARSPITE

DESCRIPTION -- Wooden barrel made from the timbers of the Royal Naval vessel HMS Warspite with the size being 3" (8cm) high and it shows a plaque on the front wengraved with name and details. It dates from the 1930's and is in a good condition (click on the picture for a closer view).
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION
-- Good

HISTORY
-- Seven ships of the Royal Navy have been named Warspite. The origins of the name are unclear, although it is probably a pun on the word 'spite', in part embodying contempt for the Navy's enemies, but also the common name for the green woodpecker, suggesting the 'Warspite' would poke holes in enemy ships' (wooden) hulls. This HMS Warspite (03) was a Queen Elizabeth-class battleship launched in 1913. She served in the First World War and in numerous operations in the Second World War, earning the most battle honours of any Royal Navy ship. She ran aground on her way to be broken up in 1947 and was scrapped in 1950.
