During World War Two, HMS Valiant was badly damaged by delayed action mines, set by Italian Frogmen at Alexandria, She made her way to Durban, South Africa for repairs.

HMS Valiant joined the British eastern Fleet in January 1944 and took part in carrier raids against Japanese bases in Indonesia. HMS valiant was badly damaged during refit in a floating dock at Trincomalee, Ceylon, so bad was the damage that repairs were stopped, and she was used as a training hulk for stockers at Devonport. She was scrapped at Cairn Ryan and Troon between November 1948 and March 1950. Spec same as above battleships

I need your help in identifying a battleship shown on an Ilford poster for the 1935 Silver Jubilee Naval Review. The poster was produced just prior to the 1935 review and included two magnificent photographs individually mounted onto the poster background. My father served in the Royal Navy from 1926 until 1954 until he retired as Commander.

From the research I have done it is one of the Queen Elizabeth class of battleships. I have looked at numerous photographs of these ships and am of the opinion that it could be HMS Valiant due the spherical surface above the cupola at the top of the foremast. From what I can determine most of the other QE ships had more of a cylindrical cupola with a flat top.

Hi, attached is a picture of a matchbox barrel and ashtray (above).  Each has a small plaque stating that it was made from the teak of HMS Valiant. From your site it was probably made in either Durban or Scotland when she was finally broken up.

HMS Barham leads the 5th Battle Squadon at Jutland by Anthony Saunders.


HMS Barham leads the 5th Battle Squadon at Jutland by Anthony Saunders.

The greatest naval battle of the First World War took place on the 31st of May and the 1st of June 1916, near the Danish province of Jutland. It was the first and only sea battle between the British and German fleets, and certainly proved to be the clash of the Titans that the First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill, had long planned. Decisive victory was claimed by both sides, but, desperately fought though it was, the outcome was indecisive. The Royal Navy suffered higher losses in both men and ships, but the German fleet never ventured out of harbour to seek battle again. During the daylight fighting HMS Barham, under Rear Admiral Evan-Thomas, lead the 5th Battle Squadron (Valiant, Warspite and Malaya) and is seen here at 4.50pm exchanging with Hippers battle-cruisers to the south.
