A British flotilla commanded by Captain Fox, sights a German flotilla steaming southwards.


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.

February 1942 and Viz. Admiral Ciliaxs mighty Scharnhorst leads her sister Gneisenau and Prinz Eugen up the English Channel during Operation Cerberus, their daring breakout from the port of Brest on the French Atlantic coast to the relative safety of Wilhelmshaven and Brunsbuttel. All three ships survived what became known as the Channel Dash, not without damage, but the operation proved a huge propaganda success for Germany and a crushing embarrassment for the British. A number of torpedo boats are in attendance, including Kondor and Falke and the Z class destroyer Friedrich Ihn in the distance.

 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.†
