HMS ARIADNE..

My wife's great uncle served on HMS Ariadne and died in 1917 from a tropical disease in the Royal Naval Hospital in Plymouth. Can anyone tell us where the ship was deployed in 1916/17?

HMS EUROPA

FREDERICK GEORGE DOVE... Could anyone help me please. I am trying to research the ships and station that my grandfather served upon during the period 10th June 1910 - 11th February 1922. He served on the following ships: Europa (March - April 1912), Doris/Monmouth (1912-1914), Talbot (Jan 1914), Argyle (1914-1915), Conqueror (1915-1919), Lord Nelson (1919), Pembroke/Egremont (1919-1920) and Crescent (1920-1922). Any information regarding these ships will be gratefully accepted. contact Joe Smitheringale at joseph@smitheringale5224.freeserve.co.uk
