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.

Some Current Half Price Offers

One of the most decisive battles in the history of the Royal Navy, Nelsons defeat of the French fleet took place on 21st October 1805 off Cape Trafalgar and was conducted with not a single British ship lost, although few ships escaped severe punishment and loss of life on both sides was tragically high

 Showing visible signs of her tangle with British cruisers at the Battle of the River Plate, the German pocket battleship Graf Spee slips into the neutral waters of the Montevideo roadstead for light repairs.  This was to be the last haven for the Graf Spee which was later scuttled at the harbour mouth, her commander Kapitan zur See Langsdorff believing a large British fleet to be waiting for attempted escape into the South Atlantic.

 A splendid little war was how John Hay, ambassador to Britain, described the Spanish-American war of 1898. Though the war was small in scope it was large in consequences; it promoted the regeneration of the American Navy and the emergence of the United States as a major world power. Fought primarily at sea, the war created an American naval legend in its opening encounter between the pacific squadrons of Spain and the United States at Manila Bay on the 1st of May 1898. At sunrise Admiral Dewey, leading the American fleet in his flagship the USS Olympia, had caught the Spanish fleet, under Admiral Patricio Montojo, by surprise - still anchored off Sangley Point at Manila Bay in the Philippine Islands. Defeat for the Spanish was total and heralded the end of a once extensive Spanish empire in the Americas. Montojos flagship, Reina Cristina, is seen here under fire from the Olympia.

In this lovely picture from Graham Bosworth, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) is seen flying past the very famous Boston Stump in Lincolnshire (properly known as St Botolph*#39;s Church).  Called the Boston 'Stump' because the tower was completed over a period of 100 years, appearing as a stump on the horizon (alternative theory is that the tower should have had a spire on top of it and the 'stump' is therefore the base.  St Botolph's is one of the largest parish churches in England.  Founded in 1390, St Botolph's is aiming to raise 3,000,000 by 2009 in time for its 700th birthday and for much-needed restoration.  The BBMF is much beloved by many people of all ages and the sounds of the engines from these World War II aircraft still draws the crowds.  Based at Conningsby in Lincolnshire the formation displays throughout Europe.
