Tww Comment

On 3 June 1859, Victoria and Albert ran aground in the Scheldt whilst on a voyage from Gravesend, Kent to Antwerp, Belgium. The ship was used by Prince Arthur on the occasion of his visit to Heligoland in 1872. Victoria and Albert was scrapped in about 1904. El Horria was built to the same specifications for Isma'il Pasha, the Khedive of Egypt in 1865 and survives today, although much altered. (wikipedia)
