Title: The hulk Warrior (1781) anchored off Woolwich.
Description: The hulk 'Warrior', shown anchored off Woolwich, was one of the prison hulks placed on the Thames in the aftermath of the American Revolution when transportation across the Atlantic was suspended by war. 'Warrior' had previously served as a 74-gun man of war before being purchased by the prison authorities in 1840. She served as a 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.
