HMS Irresistible.   Royal Naval battleship of the Formidable Class.  The first vessel to be sent to Gibraltar as a guardship was the Devastation, but her place was to be taken by Irresistible, one of the London class battleships, in 1902. She was an exceedingly powerful vessel, and the Commander-in-Chief in the Mediterranean would not allow her to remain at the Rock in idleness, but utilised her as an addition to his squadron. 

Armament: four 12inch guns, twelve 6 inch guns, sixteen 12 pdr guns, two 12 pdr guns, six 3 pdr guns, 2 maxims and four torpedo tubes.    Displacement: 15,000 tons.   Speed: 18 knots.    Complement: 780 (flagship 810).
