The 'St. George' and other vessels
This 100-gun First-Rate was launched at Woolwich Dockyard in 1756. It was the first to be built in the 18th century without a poop-royal which was a short deck above the after end of the poop where the master or pilot had his cabin. King George III visited the 'Royal George' at Portsmouth while it was under construction, and she was Sir Edward Hawke's flagship at the Battle of Quiberon Bay in 1759, when the French fleet under Admiral de Conflans was largely destroyed and a threatened French invasion plan averted.
