The 'St George' with other vessels
The 98-gun, second-rate three-decker 'St George' was launched at Portsmouth Dockyard in 1785. She served at the siege of Toulon in 1793 and was Nelson's flagship in the Copenhagen campaign of 1801, although (because of her draught) he shifted his flag into the smaller 'Elephant' for the Battle of Copenhagen itself. In 1811, while flagship in the Baltic, the 'St George' was driven ashore and dismasted on Zealand but was refloated. She then sailed for England under jury rig and rudder but, on the way, another storm wrecked her on the North Sea coast of Jutland, Denmark, on Christmas Eve of that year with the loss of all but six of her crew.
