Holland 1

Displayed at the Royal Navy Submarine in Gosport, HM Submarine Torpedo Boat No 1, more generally known as Holland 1, is the only example in the world of the first practical submarine in history. Built under licence from the Electric Boat Company of the United States at Vickers Son and Maxim in Barrow (now BAE Systems), amidst disdain by many she was unceremoniously launched in October 1901. Her pioneering crew of eight men and three white mice, operating in appalling conditions in a 60 foot long metal cigar, laid the foundation of a service that today operates the most powerful warships ever to serve under the White Ensign.
