Reference number: Picture ID no. J1525
Date: Before 1845
Notes: Plan showing the inboard profile with fittings for Terror (1813) and Erebus (1826), both Bomb Vessels converted for polar exploration. The plan relates to the two ships as converted for the Antartctic Expedition under Captain James Clark Ross in 1839. The plan was subsequently used for the two ships' 1845 refit for the Northwest Passage under Captain Sir John Franklin, although it does not show the conversion to screw propeller. Signed by Francis J. Laire [Master Shipwright, Chatham Dockyard 1844-1858].
