HMS Iron Duke - Battleship

Country : UK
Launched : 1st March 1870

The first “IRON DUKE” was a 10-gun twin-screw battleship of 6034 tons, launched at Pembroke in 1870. She was of 4268 horse-power, which gave her a speed of 13.6 knots speed, and she carried a crew of 450 men. Her length, beam, and draught were 280ft., 54ft., and 23ft. In 1874 the “Iron Duke,” commanded by Captain William Arthur and flying the flag of Vice-Admiral Sir Frederick Shadwell, with several small craft in company, appeared off the mouth of the Klang and Langkat Rivers. Their object was to induce the Sultan of Selangor to give his word that he would make reparation for a series of piratical acts which had been committed by some of his subjects. Sir Frederick Shadwell accompanied the Governor up the Klang River to Langkat, and induced the Sultan to take measures for the punishment of the pirates, and to agree to the destruction of certain stockades. The “Iron Duke” then withdrew. On September 1st, 1875 the “Iron Duke,” while commanded by Captain Henry B. Hickley, accidentally rammed and sank the “Vanguard,” Captain Richard Dawkins, off the Kish bank. The accident occurred in foggy weather, but happily no lives were lost. In 1896-97 the “Iron Duke” was re-armed and re-rigged, but she saw no further service. She was sold in 1906 for £15,000.

Sold 15th June 1906.
