She also took part in the Battle of Cape Teudada. On the 7th May 1942 in the bombardment of Diego Saurez (Madagascar) she was torpedoed by Japanese midget submarine on the 30th May 1942.

The following story is donated by Joseph Hayes Todd whose father, Robert William Todd serving on USS Duntroon in 1942, participated in the food fight:

During February, 1942, my father, Robert William Todd, a soldier in the U.S. Army Air Corp, was at sea for about one month (his estimate) en route from Melbourne, Australia to Colombo, Ceylon.  During this time the meals aboard ship were the same three orbs each day: a boiled potato, a boiled egg and an orange.    Breakfast, lunch and dinner, day after day.

Finally his ship arrived in port at Colombo and tied up next to the HMS Ramillies.   They crews began talking back and forth and someone on the Duntroon tossed an orange, egg or potato at the crew of the Ramillies.   Well, the crew of the Ramillies duly returned fire with same food item.   Quickly there was hundreds of salvos fired, pounds of food airborn at once, and a huge mess and a good laugh.

In the end, both crews had to clean the ships thoroughly, but what could commanders do, discipline thousands, or entire crews of two ships? Wasting government property (food) was a serious offense, at least on the U.S. side, but everyone seemed guilty.

 With his personal emblem of black and white fuselage band adorning his Fokker E.V, 153/18, Richard Wenzl briefly commanded Jasta 6, based at Bernes in August 1918, and claimed a modest 6 victories during his career with JG 1. The Fokker E.V was both fast and manoeuvrable, but a series of engine and structural failures meant that these exciting new machines saw only brief service before being re-worked to emerge as the D.VIII, sadly too late to make any impression on the war. Wenzl is shown here in combat with Sopwith Camels of 203 Sqn, assisted by Fokker D.VIIs, which served alongside the E.Vs of Jasta 6. The D.VII shown is that of Ltn d R Erich Just of Jasta 11, also based at Bernes.

Spitfire N3029 (DW-K) was shot down by a Bf109 on the 5th of September 1940 and crash-landed near Gravesend, Kent, thankfully without injury to Sgt Willcocks, the pilot.  For the record, N3029 was rebuilt and, following some brief flying in the UK, was sent overseas by convoy to the Middle East.  Ironically, the ship carrying this aircraft was torpedoed en route and both ship and all its cargo were lost.

Half Price! - £50.00
 During a patrol on 6th July 1918, Christiansen spotted a British submarine on the surface of the Thames Estuary. He immediately turned and put his Hansa-Brandenburg W.29 floatplane into an attacking dive, raking the submarine C.25 with machine gun fire, killing the captain and five other crewmen. This victory was added to his personal tally, bringing his score to 13 kills by the end of the war, even though the submarine managed to limp back to safety. Christiansen survived the war and went on to work as a pilot for the Dornier company, notably flying the giant Dornier Do.X on its inaugural flight to New York in 1930. He died in 1972, aged 93.

 Following the success of several French imports to Highbury, Arsene Wenger again turned to his home country in search of another midfield maestro.  Robert Pires was duly signed from Marseille in July 2000 in a £6 million deal.  Robert Pires has adjusted quickly to the English game.  Pires and his love affair with English football comes from the intensity of the game teamed with the passion from the Highbury fans.  On describing the fans' reaction when he scores, he said, <i>It's an unbelievablesensation to be standing on the pitch when the whole crowd erupts.</i>  For a man who played in a European championship final, and who won the World Cup, these words must sound sweet to the Highbury faithful.
