HMS Northumberland
The Northumberland is a Barnard built ship with a well documented history. For it was to this ship that Napoleon Bonaparte was transfered, after his surrender to  the Captain of HMS Bellerophon. HMS Northumberland (74 guns) brought Napoleon to exile in St Helena on 8th August 1815.

St Helena stamps show the Norhumberland on their 40p stamp. There are two official covers, one blue and the other cream, both bearing the design of vessels associated with St Helena. The six stamps affixed to each cover are canceled with a special cachet featuring the bowline knot.
