The wreck of a warship dating back 600 years ago to the reign of Henry V is believed to have been found at the bottom of the River Hamble in Hampshire. The Holy Ghost or Holigost was one of four battleships commissioned by Henry V for service in the Hundred Years War against France. Historian Dr Ian Friel spotted the ship in an aerial photograph taken over an area of the river which in Medieval times served as a breaker’s yard. Borrowing a phrase from oil explorers, ‘the best place to find a wreck is where one has already been found’ and that is the case with the Holigost as its location is close to the 1930s discovery of Henry’s flagship the Grace Dieu. Dr Friel said “In my opinion, further research leading to the rediscovery of the Holigost would be even more important than the identification of the Grace Dieu in the 1930s. The Holigost fought in two of the most significant naval battles of the Hundred Years War, battles that opened the way for the English conquest of northern France.” What impeccable timing, the potential discovery has been unveiled almost 600 years to the day of the Battle of Agincourt which we all remember from our schooldays took place on 25 October 2015 (the editor had to look it up).
