1843 - Launch of EURYDICE

16th May. HMS Eurydice was launched from the Dockyard by Miss Elliot.

Eurydice was an experimental ship built by Rear-Admiral Elliot with the view of testing how far all the weatherly and other sailing qualities of Sir W. Symond’s ships could be attained under a reduction of at least one-tenth of her draught. (See 1878)
