HMS Boscawen Was a Royal Navy Shore Establishment on Portland Bill Naval Base in Dorset home to the Royal Navy Police and A boys Trainign Ship Today Boscawen is the base of the local Sea Cadets but the name has been associated with Portland Harbour for a century and a half.

The training ship Boscawen first arrived in Portland Roads in February 1862. She was a three decked sailing ship of the line, launched in 1844 but reduced to a hulk in 1862 and converted into a training ship for boy seamen. HMS Britannia had been the first training ship at Portland but the conditions in the anchorage had not suited her and she moved to Dartmouth where she became the forerunner of the Royal Naval College.

The original Boscawen at Portland left in 1873 and was replaced by HMS Trafalgar, which took on the name Boscawen and remained at Portland until she was sold in 1906. As the Royal Navy grew in size towards the end of the 19th century, so additional accommodation was required for boys' training. To meet this demand, two old broadside ironclad warships were brought into service, first Minotaur in 1898 to be followed by Agincourt in 1904. They were known as Boscawen II and Boscawen III respectively.
