Description: The 6,710 ton ironclad HMS 'Valiant' was launched on 14 October 1863 at the Westwood Bailie Yard on the Isle of Dogs. After a long commission, she was used for harbour service in 1898 and renamed 'Indus'. In 1919 she was renamed 'Valiant II' and was eventually sold for scrap in 1957. She is shown here berthed next to the 'Minotaur', launched on 12 December 1863 at the Thames Ironworks, Blackwall.
