Section of the bows of H.M.S. Warrior, 1861. Diagram of ironclad steamship showing water level: 'A: Armour plating, 4½ inches thick; B: Teak lining, 8 inches thick; C: Teak lining, 10 inches thick; D: Frame; E E Wing passage...This vessel, the first completed of our new iron-clad ships-of-war, and by far the noblest and most efficient fighting-ship in commission in the world...The rapidity with which the works have been carried on since the ship was launched is most creditable to the contractors, the Thames Shipbuilding Company, and the manner in which the whole of the works of a novel and exceedingly difficult character have been executed has given perfect satisfaction to the inspectors appointed by the Government'. From "Illustrated London News", 1861.
