HMS M.33 is the only surviving British warship from the Gallipoli Campaign. Launched in May 1915 and built in just seven weeks, she has a fascinating history. She has now been restored to her former glory and is open to the public at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
“Commemorating Gallipoli – HMS M.33 Project” is part of the ”Great War at Sea 1914-1918” programme, as explained on The National Museum of the Royal Navy website.
M33 is positioned in No.1 Dock alongside HMS Victory. Visitors are greeted once onboard with “a stunning immersive battle experience” created using cutting-edge audio visual and lighting technology.
VIZBOX Enclosures Limited are proud to have provided protective environmental housings for the projectors used on the restored ship. The technology was designed and installed by FusionLX Limited. FusionLX predominantly design and install advanced audio visual and lighting solutions into museums and attractions all over the world.
