There were many small and sometimes not so small colonial wars throughout the long period of general peace from 1815 to 1914 which affected a small proportion of the British who participated in the military. Britain's Navy was large but mostly had not much to do and the army was always pretty small.
However, with the possible exception of the Crimean War, the British public were for the most part very little affected by war and would not have considered themselves in a "continuos war" during the long reign of Queen Victoria.
