HMS M.33 is a unique survivor. Launched in May 1915 she is the sole remaining British veteran of that year’s bloody Gallipoli Campaign. 

The National Museum of the Royal Navy and Hampshire County Council have worked as partners to develop the £2.4m project to conserve, restore and interpret HMS M.33. With the help of a grant of £1.8m from the Heritage Lottery Fund the ship is now physically and intellectually open to all for the first time.
