A British flotilla commanded by Captain Fox, sights a German flotilla steaming southwards.
Accompanying the light cruiser Undaunted, which Captain Cecil Fox, who was in command of a flotilla, commanded were the destroyers Lance (Commander W de M Egerton) Lennox (Lieut Commander R Dane) Legion (Lieut-Commander Claud F Allsup) and Loyal (Lieut-Commander F Burges Watson) While steaming off the Dutch coast on October 17th 1914, the smoke of four vessels was seen to the north. Captain Fox at once ordered his vessels to clear for action and to give chase at full speed. On sighting them, the enemy turned and fled, and the British vessels dashed forward at over thirty miles an hour, washed from end to end by sea and spray.
