Eleven Turkish Officers And 250 Men Surrender To Lieutenant Singleton.


Eleven Turkish Officers And 250 Men Surrender To Lieutenant Singleton.

At the approach of the British flotilla the Turkish forces fled, but so rapidly did the Shaitan pursue her way through the town of Amara and beyond, that she succeeded in getting into a position from which her guns commanded the line of the Turkish retreat. Then followed the rather ludicrous sight of eleven Turkish officers and 250 men laying down their arms and throwing up their hands to this pigmy improvised warship, rather than run the gauntlet of her small but well served guns. The days work resulted in the occupation of Amara, including the capture of a garrison of a thousand, and the Governor and Commander-in-Chief of the forces that had been driven from Kurnah. Lieutenant Singleton was awarded the D.S.O.

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.

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.

HMS Glowworm, burning severely after receiving hits from the mighty Admiral Hipper, is depicted turning to begin her heroic sacrifice off the Norwegian coast on 8th April 1940. Hugely out-gunned and already crippled, Glowworms captain, Lieutenant-Commander Roope rammed his destroyer into the side of the Admiral Hipper, inflicting a 40 metre rip in its armour belt before drifting away and exploding. 38 British sailors were rescued from the sea and Roope was awarded a posthumous VC for his bravery, the first earned by the Royal Navy in WWII.

Showing visible signs of her tangle with British cruisers at the Battle of the River Plate, the German pocket battleship Graf Spee slips into the neutral waters of the Montevideo roadstead accompanied by the Uruguayan gunboat Rio Negro for light repairs. (Damage can be seen on the hull and behind the Conning tower ) . This was to be the last haven for the Graf Spee which was later scuttled at the harbour mouth, her commander Kapitan zur See Langsdorff believing a large British fleet to be waiting for attempted escape into the South Atlantic.
