British ship pages will be distinguished by the prefixes HBMS, HBMF, HBMUS, HMBOV or HBV - His/Her Britannic Majesty's Ship/Frigate/Unrated/ Ship, Other Vessel or Hired British Vessel - before ship´s name. These abbreviations will help distinguish similar ship´s names between nations and government warships from privateers or privately-owned merchantmen. All pages are suffixed with the date of launch E.g. HBMS Victory (1765)
