HMS Warspite was a Queen Elizabeth-class battleship of the Royal Navy. During World War II Warspite gained the nickname “The Grand Old Lady” after a comment made by Admiral Sir Andrew Cunningham in 1943.
Warspite and the other vessels in her class were advocated by Admiral Sir John ‘Jackie’ Fisher, and Winston Churchill, then First Lord of the Admiralty.
She served in both World War I and World War II, earning the most battle honours ever awarded to an individual ship in the Royal Navy, including the most awarded for actions in the Second World War.
