The Inshore Squadron was formed in 1998 to help commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of the Nile at the Royal Naval  Museum in Portsmouth.

A 1/1200th scale representation of Aboukir Bay was set up in the superb surroundings of the new Nelson Gallery, and with the use of a mixture of computer graphics and specially constructed models, the Inshore Squadron demonstrated Nelson's attack to over 300 visitors during the anniversary weekend of 1st/2nd August.

This web-page has been set up to show the Squadron's activities to a wider audience,  including wargamers, model-makers and all those with an interest in naval history in the Age of Sail.

As the site develops, we will add more write-ups of our demonstration events, together with historical information and links to other sites of interest.
