Will you be HMS Victory's 25 millionth visitor? Go on board the world's oldest commissioned warship – the flagship of the Second Sea Lord in his role as Commander in Chief of the Royal Navy's Home Command – in August or September and you could win a very special prize.

The lucky 25 millionth visitor will be welcomed aboard by Commanding Officer, Lt Cdr Rod Strathern and Director General of the National Museum of the Royal Navy, Prof Dominic Tweddle. They will also win a ‘money can’t buy’ prize of tea with the Commanding Officer, a personalised tour of the ship and the dock bottom, plus a tot of rum (for the adults!) in the officer’s mess to finish the day - to be arranged at a later date.
