Monmouth Class armoured cruisers of the Royal Navy. Cruisers in the class were HMS Monmouth, HMS Bedford, HMS Berwick, HMS Cornwall, HMS Cumberland, HMS Donegal, HMS Essex, HMS Kent, HMS Lancaster and HMS Suffolk.

In response to the number of amoured cruisers being built by Germany, France and The United States, The Royal navy ordered the 10 cruisers of the Monmouth class, over the naval programmes of 1898 / 1899 and 1900.  These ships were planned to have the same speed as th4e Drake Class, but be smaller and so be cheaper to Build, they also had the same armour arrangement as the Cressy class but the armour was of a reduced thickness. These differences made these ships inadequate to fulfill their functions and were considered by many to be second rate cruisers.   they were good steamers but due to the weight of their turrets pitched heavily in bad weather.  All the class served in Home waters except HMS Lancaster and HMS Monmouth which served in the Mediterranean. From 1906 all the ships were dispersed to overseas stations. 

Displacement: 9800 tons,  Speed: 23 knots.  Compliment: 678  Armament: Fourteen 6 inch Quick firing guns, , ten 12 pdr QF guns,  Three 3 pdr QF  and Two 18-nch torpedo tubes submerged.

Artist's Impression of HMS Kent sinking Nurnberg off the Falkland Islands, December 8th 1914.

Sent in by John Valentine, whose father served during this battle;

My father, Frederick Valentine, served as a sub-lieutenant on board HMS Kent during the Falklands navel battle. I am at present scanning his photographs of these events and attempting to restore the images, many of which are in very poor condition.  I would be interested in identifying some of the ships and, who knows, finding relatives of the other men who served with my father under Captain Allen.  I have a copy of the "Daily Colonist" a Vancouver newspaper dated June 6th 1915. This is where the Kent was refitted after suffering considerable damage in her battle with the Nuremberg. There is a photograph of the Kent's officers with their names. My father was listed as "midshipman" as he was serving as an RNVR, having spent several years in sail on The Mersey, running between England and Australia. He was trained on HMS Conway. Also included are photographs of the ships company and Captain Allen.  Also in the paper, printed across the top of two inside pages (see above), is an artists impression of the Nuremberg going down with the Kent standing off at a distance my father described as "unrealistically close in naval terms". The detail is such that I imagine the engraver used photographs as his source.  The paper had been triple-folded  and squashed into the back of the album for nearly ninety years, so it is rather delicate.  

If you know of anyone who has a relative who served on the Kent at this time, I would be interested in making contact. The album had been hidden away in a cupboard since my father's death in 1968, but it has recently come into my possession. I want it to be shared by all who may be interested. The originals are not of course for sale under any circumstances.

Stokers Feeding the Furnace of HMS Kent While Chasing and Sinking the Nurnberg by  B S Bagdatopulos (P)


Stokers Feeding the Furnace of HMS Kent While Chasing and Sinking the Nurnberg by B S Bagdatopulos (P)

On December 8th 1914, a German Squadron was defeated by a British Squadron off the Falkland Islands. When von Spees ships were sighted, Admiral Sturdee detailed the armoured cruiser HMS Kent to keep in touch with the Nurnberg, the nearest enemy ship. The Kent was slower in speed and her bunkers were not full, but even if they had been, the added weight would probably have hindered her. To get the most out of her engines, Seamen and others were sent below to help to feed the furnaces and to rush up coal from the bunkers. Later, one of the 6 inch guns thundered out, where upon the stokers, knowing they were at last within range of the Nurnberg, gave a great shout. In recognition of their gallant services Stoker Petty Officer G S Brewer was awarded the DSM.

The Opening Of The Action Between The Kent And The Nurnberg Off The Falkalnd Islands.


The Opening Of The Action Between The Kent And The Nurnberg Off The Falkalnd Islands.

The Kent began the engagement with Admiral Von Spees fleet by opening fire on the Nurnberg at a range of 11,000 yards-nearly six and a half miles. A fight at full speed was very soon in progress, and both vessels showed good shooting. But by a combination of fine marksmanship and good luck of the first shells fired by the Kent struck the Nurnberg square in the stern, disabling the after guns affecting the enemys speed and power of manoeuvring. The guns of the Nurnberg fired more rapidly than those of the Kent, however, and shells fell all round the British cruiser. Her silk ensign was shot to ribbons, and the foretopmast was carried away.

After Filling Her Bunkers The Kent Once More Searched For The Dresden.


After Filling Her Bunkers The Kent Once More Searched For The Dresden.

After Sir Frederick Sturdees victory over Admiral von Spee, off the Falkland Islands, on December 8th 1914, the cruiser Dresden remained the sole representative of the regular German Navy on the high seas, and hid amongst the innumerable islands off the Chilean coast of South America. The scattered squadron in search of her was under the orders of Captain John Luce, of H.M.S. Glasgow, and included among other vessels the armoured cruiser Kent (Captain John D. Allen) and the armed liner Orama (Captain John R Seagrave). On March 4th 1915, the Kent received a wireless message from the Glasgow, telling her that if she proceeded to a certain port she might come across Dresden. For a few days she hunted in vain, but at daybreak on March 8th caught sight of her. The Kent sped as hard as she could, but the Dresden was a faster ship, and night came on without the British ship being able to get within range. The Kent was now running short of coal, and spent the next day and night filling he.........

 On the morning of 21st April 1917, coastal airship No C.17 was on a routine patrol captained by Sub Lieutenant  E G O Jackson, when sometime around 8.00am, she was attacked by German seaplanes and shot down. Such was their vulnerability that these huge battlebags were an easy target for marauding enemy scouts, their single Lewis guns achieving little by way of defence. The Hansa Brandenburg W.12, on the other hand, was a nimble and useful aircraft that the Germans put to good use in the coastal defence role.

 Just as the name Zeppelin had become the common term for almost every German airship that ventured over Britain, so the name Gotha became generically used for the enemy bombers that droned across the English Channel during 1917-1918, inflicting considerable damage to coastal ports and the capital. As the massed raids of Bombengeschwader 3 increased, a public inquiry in England brought about the formation of the Royal Air Force as an independent service to counter this new threat and fighters from Europe were brought home to defend against these marauding giants. As a result, heavy losses on the German side meant that daylight raids had to be abandoned and all operations were henceforth conducted by night. Here, a pair of Gotha G.Vs begin to turn for home as searchlights play fruitlessly over distant fires, the grim result of another successful nights work.

To increase the strength of the US fleet in the Pacific during the critical early months of the war, USS Indiana went through the Panama Canal.  On the 28th of November 1942 USS Indiana joined Rear Admiral Lee's aircraft carrier screening force.  For the next 11 months, USS Indiana helped protect USS Enterprise and USS Saratoga, which had been supporting the US invasion on the Solomon Islands.  On the 21st of October 1943 USS Indiana went to Pearl Harbor, but after only a couple of weeks left to support forces designated for the invasion of the Gilbert Islands.  The battleship protected the carriers which supported the Marines during the bloody fight for Tarawa atoll.  Then, in late January 1944, she bombarded Kwajalein for eight days prior to the  Marshall Island landings on 1st February 1944.  USS Indiana collided with the battleship USS Washington while refuelling destroyers, killing several men.  Temporary repairs to her starboard side were made at Majuro and USS Indiana returned to Pearl Harbor on 13th February 1944 for additional repair work.  The painting shows USS Indiana with one of the two carriers she protected.
