HMS Fisgard was the collective name for a cluster of old vessels moored in the northern reaches of Portsmouth Harbour and used for the training of artificer apprentices.

The vessel on the right is the Boer War veteran cruiser HMS Terrible.

The training school was finally broken up in 1932 and the vessels were scrapped or moved to new locations.
