Monitors of the Royal Navy were first ordered by Brazil in January 1912. Three monitors Javary, Madeira and Solimoes were built by Vickers and launched in 1913. The Brazilian Navy could not afford to purchase them and they remained at Devonshire Dock in Barrow. To prevent them being sold overseas and falling into German hands, the Royal Navy purchased them for £155,000 each and reclassed them as the Humber Class Monitors. Further monitors were laid down and launched between 1914-1916, these classes were Abercrombie, Lord Clive, Marshal Ney, Gorgon and the M15 and M29 Classes. The last series produced was the Erebus Class launched in 1916.

 No one will ever know exactly what caused Max Immelmanns demise, but what is known is that his propeller was seen to disintegrate, which caused a series violent oscillations that ripped the Fokker E.III apart, the tail breaking away before the wings folded back, trapping the young German ace in his cockpit. The popular belief is that his interrupter gear malfunctioned, causing him to shoot away part of his own propeller, but British reports attribute Immelmanns loss to the gunnery of Cpl J H Waller from the nose of FE.2b 6346 flown by 2Lt G R McCubbin on Sunday, 18th June 1916. Immelmann was flying the spare E.III 246/16 as his own E.IV had been badly shot up earlier that day.

So Tell The Spartans, Stranger passing by that here, Obedient to their laws, we lie.   In 480 BC the Spartans tried to defend the pass at Thermopylae against the Persians led by Xerxes.  The Persian fleet had sailed along the coastline from northern Greece into the Gulf of Malia on the eastern Aegean Sea towards the mountains at Thermopylae. The Greek General and King Leonidas led the Greeks  and tried to defend the pass of Thermopylae.  All the defending Spartans were killed during the Battle of Thermopylae. Their defence and courage provided inspiration to the Greeks, and the following year the Greeks won battles against their old enemy the Persians.
