Forgotten ships in Paraguay

An email from a reader. Was very interesting so I thought I'd quote it.

 'Perhaps of interest. Vapor Cué Park in Paraguay. From the War of the Triple Alliance, 1864 to 1869. Stranded, forgotten & then recovered Paraguayan Navy steam squadron of six vessels, on static display deep in the plains of the interior of Paraguay. Miles from navigable water. In varied states of conservation. Two of these ships were built in the UK.

When searching Vapor Cué be sure to use the accent over the é. Otherwise you'll be directed to vaping paraphernalia'

  1. Good post.
    I can recommend 'Warships at the Battle of Riachuelo' by W Warner that relates to this topic...
