Description: The 'Warrior' had previously served as a 74-gun man of war before being purchased by the prison authorities in 1840. She served as a prison hulk until 1851 when a mutiny broke out on board. The disturbance was put down by a detachment of Royal Marines and the prisoners were sent to Millbank Prison. 'Warrior' was sold off soon after.
