Default Is this IJNS Izumo?

Is anyone able to confirm that this is the Japanese Armoured Cruiser Izumo? Izumo was in the Mediterranean for much of WW1, but in Dec 1918 she went to Scapa Flow in company with the destroyers Hinoki and Yanagi to help guard the High Seas Fleet. She then escorted seven captured U-boats to Japan.
In January 1919 Izumo visited Portland (UK).

These shots come from this Pathe clip: http://www.britishpathe.com/video/japanese-flotilla

Thanks
Tony

Or perhaps the YAKUMO?

I agree very similar, but as far as I can ascertain, Yakumo did not go to Europe. The Pathe clip appears to be in England, which does rather limit it to Izumo. The European aspect also rules out Izumo's sister Iwate.

I think it is YAKUMO - it does not look like an "Idzumo" Class ship (and are you sure it is England?).

Izumo had casement-mounted secondary guns mounted in bulges that protruded out from her hull sides... this photo does not have those.

She also did not have a casement-mounted gun forward of her fore twin turret.

Furthermore, she had two anchors on her starboard bow and only one on her port bow.


Yakumo does have such a casement-mounted gun in a bulge in the bow, as well as two anchors in her port bow, and flush-mounted hull-side casement-mounted guns.

I'll go with Yakumo. I was captured by a report in a local paper announcing Idzumo's arrival in Portland (UK) in early 1919 that I put 2 and 3 together and got 6!

One further challenge - are the two ships in the clip the same? The one viewed from the port quarter appears to have only two funnels. Close investigation of the stills at 1 - 6 and 22-25 show a different foremast to the ship in stills 7-16.

Thanks for your help.

The ship which appears briefly, viewed from astern, appears to be an "Asama" Class armoured cruiser.

Yakumo and Iwate visited Vancouver in the early 1920s. Vancouver would have had British Press available at the time.

 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.

 Mystery still surrounds just why Manfred von Richthofen risked so much in chasing the novice pilot Wilfred Wop May into Allied-occupied territory on the morning of Sunday, 21st April 1918, but it was to be his last flight, this error of judgement costing him his life. Von Richthofen had broken from the main fight involving Sopwith Camels of 209 Sqn to chase Mays aircraft, but found himself under attack from the Camel of Captain Roy Brown. All three aircraft turned and weaved low along the Somme River, the all red Triplane coming under intense fire from the ground as well as from Browns aircraft. No one knows exactly who fired the crucial bullet, but Manfred von Richthofens aircraft was seen to dive suddenly and impact with the ground. The Red Baron was dead and his amazing run of 80 victories was over. The painting shows Mays aircraft (D3326) in the extreme distance, pursued by DR.1 (425/17) and Browns Camel (B7270) in the foreground.
