HMS Warrior... much of a time, the deck and bulkhead was painted deep red... so when the scene was awash with blood... the gun crew was not distracted from their duty... sand was tossed on the deck to reduce slipping in it...

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard - The HMS Victory at Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard is one of Hampshire's most popular tourist attractions. Launched in 1765, she is best known as Lord Nelson's flagship during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. HMS Victory currently resides in Portsmouth, where she has been since 1922, having undergone a series of restorations. Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard is also home to the HMS Warrior and the Mary Rose (the new museum opened earlier this year).

HMS Warrior

I've chosen this picture because there's lots of things to look at. There are lots of shapes in this picture, like the square shape of the pots on the table.
