The Warrior Preservation trust welcomes donations for the collection, within the limits of our acquisitions policy.

In broad terms this involves items relating to Warrior and her sister ship Black Prince through all stages of their careers. We are also interested in information pertaining to the crew of HMS Warrior between 1861 and 1904, and of HMS Vernon lll 1904-1923.

We cannot always accept material offered for the collection, for instance if it duplicates an item we already have. If we cannot accept an item, we may be able to recommend an alternative home.

We are currently improving our archive facilities, which will be accessible and open to potential users later this year.

If you have an item or information which you think may be of interest or if you have a question or query for the archivist we would be pleased to hear from you. It would help if you could give as much detail as you can about your requirements. 

Please email: and a response to your enquiry will be sent within 15 working days. If your query is urgent, please call us on 023 9277 8600 Ext 620.

Old Warriors - If you are related to someone who served in the ship during her history we would be grateful if you could offer any information for our growing Genealogical Archive. More information
