HMS Euryalus

HMS Euryalus was a Royal Navy 36-gun Apollo-class frigate, which saw service in the Battle of Trafalgar and the War of 1812. After the end of the Napoleonic Wars she continued on active service for a number of years, before spending more than two decades as a prison hulk. The Euryalus was moored at Chatham and became a hulk solely for young boys. Here the regime was especially severe. Boys were kept below deck for 23 hours a day and forced to do manual labour. They lived in constant fear of physical abuse from the guards and a culture of gang violence was embedded. Euryalus ended her career in Gibraltar where, in 1860, she was sold for breaking up.
