Naval history and photographs of some of the Navy's great Commanders during the early 1900's and throughout the history of the Royal Navy.

H.S.H. Prince Louis of Battenberg, First Sea Lord.  c.1914

First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill.  (photo published 1914).

One of the most brilliant of the younger generation of British statesmen, Mr. Winston Churchill obtained cabinet rank in his thirty-fourth year.  In 1910 he was appointed Home Secretary, and in October 1911 he became First Lord of the Admiralty.  Thanks to his untiring advocacy, Parliament had constantly voted increasing supplies for the Navy, which in 1914 was admitted on all hands to be in the highest possible state of efficiency.

Winston Churchill later became Prime Minister during World War 2, and one of the greatest Prime Ministers Britian ever had.

 
Captain Robert Falcon Scott RN 1868-1912

He commanded the National Antarctic Expedition of 1900-4 and the British Antarctic Expedition which sailed in 1910to carry out research and survey work. He reached the South Pole on 18th January 1912, a few weeks after Admundsen, but his party of five were overwhelmed by a blizzard on the return journey and perished.

Vice-Admiral Arthur Knyvet Wilson VC CB in 1902.

Vice Admiral Wilson was in charge of the Channel Squadron in 1902. He had a notable career apart from the inspiring occasion when at El Teb, on February 29th 1884 he won the Victoria Cross for preventing a gap in the square from being rushed by the enemy, whom he held in check single-handed first with his sword, and, when that broke with his fists. As a middy Admiral Wilson served in the Black Sea during the Russian War, and he was also at the capture of the Peiho Forts in 1858 and at the attack on Canton. He was an experienced administrator and commander and also the inventor of the double-barrelled torpedo tubes.

Captain Rt. Hon. Lord Charles W. D. Beresford, R.N., C.B. (1896)

This distinguished and brilliant Naval Officer is as well known outside the Sea service as he is in that profession, and is a favourite everywhere.  The enterprise which elicited the signal, "Well done, Condor," at the bombardment of Alexandria, exhibited his gallantry and daring, no less than the judgement and skill displayed when in charge of the city afterwards demonstrated his capacity as an administrator.  In the House of Commons his breezy speeches never fail to fill the benches.  Our illustration from a photograph taken in January 1895 at Chatham shows him in the frock coat and cap which form the everyday uniform of a Naval Captain.  The gallant sailor will be 50 on the 10th February next, and it is the hope of all his friends to soon see him hoist his flag as an Admiral.

Captain HRH The Duke of York, R.N., K.G., K.T., A.D.C.

The Duke of York began his naval career by entering the "Britannia" in 1877 together with the late Duke of Clarence.  Two years later the princes joined the "Bacchante" serving in her, first as naval cadets and then as midshipmen, throughout her historic cruise.  From 1886 to 1888 Prince George (as the Duke was then) served as Lieutenant in the Mediterranean.  In 1889 he commanded Torpedo Boat No.79 in the manoeuvres, and in the next year commissioned the gunboat "Thrush" for the North America and West Indies station.  In August, 1891, he was promoted Commander, and commanded the "Melampus" in the manoeuvres of 1892.  Since then he has not served afloat.  Prince George was created Duke of York and promoted Captain in January 1893, just six months before his marriage with Princess May.

 En route to the dams of the Ruhr Valley, the first wave of three specially adapted Avro Lancasters roar across the Dutch wetlands on the night of 16 -17th May 1943 led by Wing Commander Guy Gibson, their mission to breach the Mohne and Eder dams, thus robbing the German war machine of valuable hydro-electric power and disrupting the water supply to the entire area.  Carrying their unique, Barnes Wallis designed 'Bouncing Bomb' and flying at just 30m above the ground to avoid radar detection, 617 Squadron's Lancasters forged their way into the enemy territories, following the canals of the Netherlands and flying through forest fire traps below treetop height to their targets.  Gibson's aircraft ('G'-George) is nearest with 'M'-Mother of Fl/Lt Hopgood off his port wing and 'P'-Peter (Popsie) of Fl/Lt Martin in the distance.

 With 39 confirmed victories to his credit, Major John Gilmour is also recognised as the joint highest scoring pilot on the Martinsyde G.100 Elephant, an unusual score given the poor performance of this aircraft in one-on-one combat. He was awarded the DSO, MC and 2 Bars during the course of his flying career and in 1917 was posted to 65 Squadron as Flight Commander flying Sopwith Camels. On 1st July 1918, he downed three Fokker D.VIIs, a Pfalz and an Albatros D.V in the space of just 45 minutes.  In 1918 he was promoted to the rank of major and posted to command 28 Squadron in Italy, staying with the trusty Camel, but he did not add further to his score, although his final un-confirmed total may have been as high as 44. He is depicted here claiming his second kill on 24th September 1916 when he destroyed a Fokker E.1 whilst flying Elephant No 7284.
