W.A. Eaton, The loss of H.M.S. 'Victoria' (London: W.A. Eaton, G.H. Graham, M. Southwell, John Ward and Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent & Co., 1893)

The ship was lost in an accidental collision in the Mediterranean on 22 June 1893; Eaton's accompanying verse reads very much as though written from newspaper accounts.
