The Disabled Laurel An Easy Target For The Enemy, Is Rescued By British Cruisers.


The Disabled Laurel An Easy Target For The Enemy, Is Rescued By British Cruisers.

For some time the two British destroyers, Laurel and Liberty, were exposed to an attack of overwhelming strength. Commander Frank Rose was struck in the left leg by a shell splinter early in the action, but he refused to leave his dangerous post. Later, however, he was struck in the other leg, and, as he was unable to stand, handed over the command to Lieutenant Charles Peploe. Suddenly a German shell enveloped the Laurel in a cloud of black smoke, and before it cleared away, British cruisers came to her assistance. Commander Rose was awarded the D.S.O., Lieutenant Peploe the D.S.C., and Engineer Lieutenant-Commander E. H. T. Meeson the D.S.O., besides being promoted to Commander. Many of the crew were awarded the D.S.M. In the Liberty Lieutenant H. E. Horan and Gunner H. Morgan was awarded the D.S.C., while Engineer Lieutenant-Commander F. A. Butler was granted accelerated promotion.

 Designed by the great Ernst Heinkel, the diminutive D.1 was an essential stop-gap that provided the Austro-Hungarian pilots with a front line fighter until they were able to re-equip with Albatros scouts in the Summer of 1917. This little aircraft performed well and was generally held in high regard by its pilots, although it did have some shortcomings, namely that forward vision was extremely limited and the Schwarzloses gun was completely concealed in the overwing pod that made it inaccessible in the air. Most unusual of all was its interplane strut arrangement, designed to reduce drag, which gave it the nicknames Starstrutter or Spider. These examples are shown passing above the German cruiser Derfflinger.

At 12.30pm on the 21st of October 1805, Admiral Lord Nelson on board his flagship, HMS Victory, breaks the line of the combined French and Spanish fleets.  The Victory is delivering a devastating stern rake to the 80 gun French ship Bucentaure, the flagship of the combined fleets, commanded by Vice-Admiral P. C. J. B. S. Villeneuve.  Starboard to the Victory is the 74 gun Redoutable.  This ship, the Victory and HMS Temeraire, seen left, became locked together soon after, the unequal exchange resulting in the Redoutable having the highest casualties during the entire battle.
