M33 is one of only two British warships to survive from World War 1. Built in 1915, the 53m (177ft) monitor is a floating gun platform designed to bombard coastal positions from the sea. She saw action at Gallipoli and later was used to help the White Russians in the White Sea in 1919. M33 is owned by Hampshire County Council Museums Service.
