View Full Version : Old Gunboats Marques del Duero & Gen Lezo
I'm searching for photographs of the old Spanish gunboats Marques del Duero and General Lezo from the Spanish-American War era. Can anyone help ?
There is a dedicated website, I believe part of the U.S. Naval Historical Center's site that probably has the photos you are looking for. Both those vessels were part of the Spanish Fleet at Manila Bay in May, 1898, if I remember correctly, and if so were sunk there.
I found a very small image on the website below:
Image of the FERNANDO EL CATOLICO, sister ship of MARQUES DEL DUERO
Wiki has this image of Caņonero de la Armada Espaņola "General Concha", 1897;
sister ship of General Lezo:
Thanks for the info and the picture. I do have that one of General Concha. From what I have seen in reference materials, The General Lezo was similar to, but not of the same class. For the Marques del Duero, I sometimes wonder if that isn't her in the photograph on the Span-Am war website, as her sister Fernando el Catolico, had a very very short life and was lost during the Carlist Wars.
