HMS NELSON was laid down at Armstrong-Whitworth's shipyard in Newcastle-on-Tyneon December 28th 1922, launched on September 3rd 1925, and commissioned on August 15th 1927.

At the outbreak of World War II in September 1939, NELSON was serving as flagship of the Home Fleet. In March 1941 NELSON supported the landing raid on the Lofoten Islands, Norway, against German factories producing fish oil and glycerine.

In July 1943, NELSON supported the Allied invasion ofSicily"Operation Husky", and the Salerno landing in September 1943. On September 29th 1943, General Dwight D Eisenhower, on behalf of the Allies, and Marshal Badoglio of Italy signed the Italian surrender agreement aboard NELSON.

In 1944, NELSON took part in the Normandy landings, subsequently transferring to the Indian Ocean to participate in the war onJapan in August and September 1945. The Japanese surrender of Malaya was signed aboard NELSON on September 3rd 1945.
