In 1865 she became an auxiliary to the training ship Britannia at Dartmouth, and remained part of that establishment until it was transferred ashore to the Royal Naval College there. She joined the boy artificers' training establishment at Portsmouth that year and was renamed Fisgard III. She was renamed Hindostan in 1920, and sold to J. B. Garnham & Sons in 1921. After being broken up, her timbers and those of HMS Impregnable were used in 1924 in the renovation of the Liberty department store in London.
