29 August 1782: The 100-ton battleship HMS Royal George - the largest warship in the world at the time of her launch in 1756 - sank off Spithead. Royal George was heeled over by rolling the ship's starboard guns into the centreline of the ship. Royal George quickly filled with water and sank, taking with her around 900 people, including up to 300 women and 60 children who were visiting the ship in harbour.

HMS Royal George sank at anchor off Portsmouth as told in Cowper's poem;
Toll for the Brave! the brave that are no more;
All sunk beneath the wave, fast by their native shore.
