A FRAGMENT OF VICTORY ORLOP DECK TIMBER

with pinned white metal plaque engraved FRAGMENT OF ORLOP DECK of H.M.S. "VICTORY" TAKEN ABOUT 6 YARDS FROM THE SPOT WHERE LORD NELSON DIED, with remnants of paint still applied -- 3½ x 3¼in. (9 x 8.5cm.) approximately

On 24th October 1903, The Times reported that the elderly battleship Neptune, which had been sold from service, collided with the Victory when a hawser broke whilst undertow and the tide swung her round and stove in her [Victory's] port side. This included the orlop deck area where Nelson died and so it seems likely this souvenir was taken off in the ensuing re-fit.

THE HON. CAPT. FREDERICK MAITLAND'S TELESCOPE
the 1½in. single draw tapering wooden tube with vestiges of original painted finish, signed by the eyepiece Troughton LONDON Honble Captn. Maitland (optics defective) -- 25½ / 34½in. (65 / 87.5cm.) closed/open
Sir Frederick Lewis Maitland (1777-1839) enjoyed a lively naval career with numerous acts of gallantry and daring do recorded to his credit. However, it was Maitland's fate to be located at the right place and to act with the typical independence of thought that characterised many of Britain's greater heroes that brought his fame to its zenith. By 1815 he was in command of the Bellerophon (74) and blockading Rochefort in the aftermath of Waterloo. Receiving intelligence that Bonaparte would attempt to escape to America from there, he sent a small boat, in the belief that Bonaparte would in fact use Rochefort. Maitland's commanding officer, Admiral Hotham, left standing orders that should he intercept Bonaparte; he was to be taken directly to England. Maitland's hunch proved correct and after four days of negotiations between the 10th and 14th July, Bonaparte and his entourage embarked for the nine day crossing to Torbay. It took a further nineteen days for the Government to decide what to do with him and he was transferred to the Northumberland. Maitland's account of Napoleon's time aboard Bellerophon was published in 1826. Maitland was appointed Captain in 1801, rank he held until made a Rear Admiral of the Blue in retirement in 1830, it is therefore highly likely this telescope was with him aboard Bellerophon during this historic period of his career.
