The Friends have an ever growing archive of documents and pictures relating to the history of our ship, HMS Trincomalee (previously TS Foudroyant), and also about people associated with her over the past 200 years.
There are also fully scripted talks with photographs in “powerpoint” form in the archive. Much of the material is derived from the personal collections of the present Editor, the first Chairman of the Friends, and a previous Trustee who was stationed aboard the Foudroyant, at Portsmouth England, during the Second World War. An example of part of such a talk can be downloaded as a pdf file by clicking on the front cover on this page.
All issues of the magazine, “Quarterdeck”, exist in a pdf form, as do a number of offprints from the magazines.
Enquiries about the archive should be made via the contact box on our contact page.
