HMS Sydney commanded by Captain J C T Glossop, Attacking the German Cruiser Emden by Maurice Randall (P)


HMS Sydney commanded by Captain J C T Glossop, Attacking the German Cruiser Emden by Maurice Randall (P)

The most brilliant feature of the war by sea for Germany was the free and uninterrupted career of the cruiser Emden against the merchant shipping of the allies. She had even shelled oil tanks at Madras, but her daring captain, Karl von Müller, was at length outwitted. Having approached the Cocos Islands, with his ship disguised with an additional funnel, her wily captain sent a landing party to destroy the wireless apparatus. But her identity was recognised and immediately the news was flashed to Singapore. The cruisers Sydney and Melbourne, convoying troopships to Europe, caught the message 100 miles off, and, going full speed ahead, the Sydney caught sight of the Emden soon after 9 am on 9th November 1914. Possessing a ship with heavier guns and greater speed, Captain Glossop soon showed his superiority, and Captain von Muller was obliged to drive the Emden ashore on North Keeling Island to save her from sinking.

 A splendid little war was how John Hay, ambassador to Britain, described the Spanish-American war of 1898. Though the war was small in scope it was large in consequences; it promoted the regeneration of the American Navy and the emergence of the United States as a major world power. Fought primarily at sea, the war created an American naval legend in its opening encounter between the pacific squadrons of Spain and the United States at Manila Bay on the 1st of May 1898. At sunrise Admiral Dewey, leading the American fleet in his flagship the USS Olympia, had caught the Spanish fleet, under Admiral Patricio Montojo, by surprise - still anchored off Sangley Point at Manila Bay in the Philippine Islands. Defeat for the Spanish was total and heralded the end of a once extensive Spanish empire in the Americas. Montojos flagship, Reina Cristina, is seen here under fire from the Olympia.
