Example text

Even now I can only think of the beginning of the action as through a dim haze. I remember seeing the enemy line on the horizon with red specks coming out of them, which I tried to realise were the cause of projectiles landing around us, continually covering us with spray, but the fact refused to sink into my brain. We were all the time rather excited and our enthusiasm knew no bounds when we passed a sunken ship with survivors swimming around her. We never dreamt that it was one of our own battlecruisers; but it was the Indefatigable, and over a thousand dead men lay in her wreck.

The lessons of the Battle of Tsushima served to reinforce this new philosophy. In May 1905, the same month as Tsushima, the British First Sea Lord, Vice-Admiral Sir John ‘Jacky’ Fisher, put Britain in the forefront of a battleship revolution when he authorized construction of the first of an entirely new class of capital ships, the first ‘all big-gun’ battleship, HMS Dreadnought. Fisher was no expert in the fields of warship design or naval gunnery, but he was determined that the Royal Navy would be modernized and prepared to meet the growing challenge posed by the German fleet.

A ship that was big and powerful enough to take its place in the line of battle was called a ‘ship of the line’ or a ‘battleship’. ’ Preserved in the historic Naval Dockyard at Portsmouth, England, are three examples of ‘capital ships’, one from the beginning of the age of ‘classical’ naval warfare, one from its zenith and the third from the point when steam began to eclipse sail. The Tudor Mary Rose, the oldest of these, was commissioned in 1509 by King Henry VIII, as the first real warship of the young Royal Navy.
