British Destroyers, accompanied by the light cruiser Amphion, under the command of Captain C. H. Fox chasing the German mine laying ship Konigin Luise.


British Destroyers, accompanied by the light cruiser Amphion, under the command of Captain C. H. Fox chasing the German mine laying ship Konigin Luise.

Within a few hours of the outbreak of war a division of British destroyers, accompanied by the light cruiser Amphion, under the command of Captain C. H. Fox, slipped out from Harwich to begin searchlight the lower end of the North Sea. On falling in with a trawler they were told by the skipper that a suspicious looking vessel had been seen throwing things overboard. Steaming on at full speed, the four leading destroyers very soon sighted what appeared to be a Great Eastern Railway steamer making towards the Dutch coast. As they rushed forward, the steamer began to put on speed, and she was soon running for all she was worth. A warning shot was fired, summoning her to stop. But as she failed to do so, the 31-pounders of the destroyers opened fire.

  HMS Norfolk and HMS Belfast of Force I are shown engaging the Scharnhorst which has already been hit and disabled by both HMS Duke of York and the cruiser HMS Jamaica.

 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.
