NOTED BATTLESHIPS. The first-class battleship Sans Pareil, which has been condemned to be broken up, is one of several ships of that name which have served in the British and French navies. One of them captured in 1794 the British frigate Castor, but was herself taken by the Majestic in the battle which took place on the 1st June in the same year. The present battleship was only launched twenty years ago, and was a sister ship of the ill-fated Victoria. The Sans Pareil and Benbow were the only ships in the British navy carrying guns weighing 110 â tona, each of them being provided with two of these monster weapons. It was early recognised that the advantages pos- sessed by these heavy guns did not com- pensate for the possibility of such a reduction in the ships armament as would be caused by an accident to one of them, and it was generally agreed that the type was not likely to be repeated.
