Ever since lighting was by Calor gas.
Using family anecdotes, the internet and the RN archives I've found records that my G/Grandad was on Victory at Trafalgar as Master of the Foretop. In a list of the Trafalgar crew and payments it was recorded that he was paid a Trafalgar 'win bonus' of 13/6d which seems to have been equivalent to a month's pay.
I've taken my own and others' youngsters on there a time or two and they were highly amused when one guide mentioned the 'Snitch stitch' and pointed out the balls on a brass monkey. (y)

Another vote for Port Solent, just ring the carpark guy before you arrive.
