In 1939 Turkey ordered from Britain four destroyers, the design of which was based on the RN's "H" Class. Two of these (DEMIHISAR and SULTANHISAR) were delivered to Turkey in 1942. Britain retained the other two which were taken over by the RN. MUAVENET served as HMS INCONSTANT and GAYRET as HMS ITHURIEL. The latter ship was a war loss. At the end of WW2 Britain delivered MUAVENET to Turkey and replaced the lost GAYRET with HMS ORIBI of the "O" Class which took the name of GAYRET.

So presumably the ships referred to in the initial query are MUAVENET/INCONSTANT and GAYRET/ORIBI. The latter is pictured below.

I did not know of this military 'cooperation' between Britain and Turkey before, during and after WWII. It implies that, in the years preceding WWII, Turkey was looking more towards Britain as a 'friend', rather than Germany. In view of the realationships of these three countries in WWI, this is a remarkable change in attitude. Does anyone know how and why this change came about?

Default Re: SPECIAL WARSHIP PICTURES (minimum 1500 pixels wide only)

Came across these 2 views of the Turkish Dreadnaught YAVUZ (ex SMS Goeben) on another forum, thought you'd like to see em
they show her in 1947, the pictures are from NARA II, whatever that is

Arguably this ship has had a greater impact on the world today than any other single unit in human history

Thanks for showing us the pictures Andy.

Best wishes,

I always thought, considering the ship's historical significance, they should have retained her full name: "Yavuz Sultan Selim" -- Sultan Selim the Grim." I guess since Turkey went secular vice theocratic, reference to a Moslem Sultan needed to be modified.

Yes. The former Turkish name had a good ring to it.

"Yavuz" (Resolute) is a good enough name for a warship but not quite as distinguished as the original.

Both photographs are very interesting.

From a monograph I have about her, to bad it is written in Turkish, but the photos are great!

Argueably the most influential warship ever built, given her impact on the course of history. DFO
