Default RN Submarines in the Baltic in WW1, E1, E8, E9, E18, E19, C26, C27, C32, & C35.

Hi All,

thought it may be a good idea to start a thread dealing with the crews of these submarines. I can hopefully help anyone who had relatives on these submarines, as many people who have their relatives papers will find that the actual submarine is not listed. A real pain for the researcher.

I have gathered many names but would love to know any details of their after navy life and so on. Part of my research is to also identify those in the crew photos and what rewards they received.

Mt interest stems from my great grandfather serving as E18's signalman while with the Russians.

Kind Regards,

Darren.

Hi Darren
Are you wanting photos of those boats on this thread or is it just information about the crews you are after. If the latter is the case, the post may get a better response on the Royal Navy Ships and Crews Forum pages.

Hi all,

As with Darren, I'm also a decendent of one of the submariners who served in the Baltic during WW1.

I'm still trying to find out which subs he actually served on, but do know that after the war he did time on some ships, incuding HMS Hood.

His name was Albert C. S. Phillips. He joined up in 1910, and finished up in 1923. I believe he was a torpedoman, as I've seen a picture of him wearing that insignia.

I'll try to post some photo's, when I can gather them from around his other decendents, that show some of the other men he served with, which maybe of interest to someone out there.

Cheers,

Dino.

Hi Jim,

im interested in both, photo will certainly help to identify the crew member photos, of which i would like to put on here but unfortuantley they are the property of the RNSM.

I have attached a photo of my great graqdfather from the E18 crew photo taken on the 9-Dec 1915. Albert Edward Robinson, signalman.

Dino, we have at least worked out your relative was an E18 man in the Baltic and is sitting next to my great grandfather, and seems to have been on E8 when she sank Prinz Adalbert. To confirm this we need a Russian Medla list, or on his actual papers, if you have them, it may list a Prize Bounty of around 300 pounds. The papers you get from the National Archives are a pain in that they do not give this information, only the copy carried by the ratings. I have looked into documents on the Bounty claim by E8, but it does not give the crews names.

Darren.

G'day again Darren,

I only have a copy of his service record which is not easy to read.
At the end of his enlistment is a reference of, "Paid final share of naval prize fund" with a sum that appears too small to be significant.

I'll attempt to track down more info through his three remaining siblings and let you know.

Cheers,

Dino.

Hi Dino,

i'm also trying to track down the Russian medal lists. I have the one for E1 and the torpedoing of the Moltke, and for E9 for the attack on the Torpedoboat S148, and the sinking of the German collier in June, and your grandfather is not on these lists.

There must be some lists for E8, Prinz Adalbert's sinking, and E19's Undine sinking, and maybe the July torpedoing of Prinz Adalbert by E9. Also a list for E18's crew that got the cross after they went missing.

Cheers Darren.

Hi Darren,

I've seen a picture of him receiving his cross, and the caption with it said that they were crews of the E8 & E9.
He was however, the last in the line before the Russian sailor, and I wonder if this had some significance to him maybe not being part of the "actual" crew?

Cheers,

Dino.

Hi Mike,

thanks for the info on Fuller. I will send you a PM a bit later about him. I'm heavily involved with E18 so anything you need to ask, please do so.

Guilty as charged, that was me that put the E18 Wikapedia site together, all from patrol reports and diaries and so on, so it is accurate.

There are now, other than mine, 5 familes from E18 that have come forward.

Dennis, i correspond with the family of Phillips, they have notes he wrote on which submarines he served on. The E9 part is questionalble, he clearly desribes coming through the Baltic on E18. Around the time you have him listed on E9, he had some cell time and we are not sure what went on. He was on E18 going through, did one patrol on E8 and got a Russian Cross for this, then he is clearly on E18 again as he is in the crew photo and was in the iced up photos of Jan 1916. I then have a May 1916 photo with Spare Crew, so he left just before E18 was lost. Only after E18 was lost would he have gone to E9.

DB.

Hi Dennis,

Thanx for this info.

Balticsubs has spent more than enough of his own time in helping find the missing pieces of info on these men and boats, and I personally would like to publicly thank him for his effort.

Not forgetting the likes of yourself and others who have helped my, & other families the world over as well, thank you!!


Regards,

Dino.

Reported today that the submarine E18 was located by a Swedish expedition and found to be in fairly good condition,she was in an area where the Germans in WW1 had laid a mine field, further investigations are being carried out to see the cause of her sinking

Hi there!

Robert was my Great Greatuncle! My Great Grandfather was the eldest son of the family (Samuel Crosby Halahan)!
Are you actually a Halahan? I'm looking to make a thorough family tree and I would very much appreciate as much info as possible!

Cheers

Hi Jessica, Henry was my grandfather. I am interested by what will happen - or has happened to the E18 - will they be left in peace or has the sub been recovered? I think there may be no direct descendants so I dont know who will know. I heard about Robert on the Today programme a couple of weeks ago. I think you have had contact with Michael Forsyth re Henry. Please get in contact if you receive this. Imogen Gosling (nee Halahan)

Hi Darren and other contributors,

My uncle Lieutenant Charles Chapman was second-in-command on board the
E9 between its first entry to the Baltic in 1914 and December 1915 when he returned to England . The RN Submarine Museum in Gosport has given me a set of records relating to his service during that campaign and then his subsequent part, in 1919, in the campaign to defend the Baltic republics against the Bolsheviks. He and his entire crew perished when their submarine, L55, struck a British-laid mine in the approaches to Kronstad (Petrograd) on June 9th,1919 - a fate like that of E18, of course. Memorials to the members of that expeditionary force, including the L55's crew, have recently been inaugurated in Portsmouth, Tallin and Riga.
I'd gladly share information with you, especially with the relatives of members of the British submarine force in th Baltic during WW1.

David Chapman

Hi All,
I have nothing at all to do with Submarines (except my Dad at one time had thought of putting his hand up to be on the crew of one in WWII.) However, his is a different story.
I do have a great deal of admiration for those that served in them though. Anyway...I just saw your interesting thread here and, for some reason, already had the link to the Portsmouth Napoleonic Society so I thought I'd add it. (I know it's already been mentioned at post 11 here....but clicking on a link is so much easier...to see it instantly.)

Captain Charles Vane was born in 1680, and was an English pirate who preyed upon English and French shipping.  Vane began piracy in 1716 and lasted 3 years. Vane captured a Barbados sloop and then a large 12-gun brigantine, which he renamed the Ranger.   Vane was among the pirate captains who operated out of the Bohama at the notorious base at New Providence after the colony had been abandoned by the British.  His pirate attacks made Captain Charles Vane well known to the Royal Navy and in February of 1718 Vincent Pearse, commander of HMS Phoenix cornered Vane on his ship the Lark.  Vane  had heard of the recent royal pardons that had been offered to pirates in exchange for a guarantee they would quit plundering, so Vane claimed he had actually been en route to surrender to Pearse and accepted the pardon on the spot,  Charle Vane gained his freedom but as soon as he was free of Pearse he ignored the pardon and resumed his pirate ways.  Charles Vane was again captured and in 1721 was executed by hanging at Gallows Point, Port Royal, Jamaica on March 29th 1721.

 Whilst flying with A Flight of 85 Squadron on 30th July 1940, Geoffrey Allard encountered a pair of Messerschmitt Bf.110s about 40 miles from the coast, apparently patrolling near a convoy.  After Squadron Leader Townsend, flying  Red 1, had made two unsuccessful attacks, Allard closed to 150 yards and began to fire continuously, eventually closing to just 25 yards, whereupon the starboard engine of the Bf.110 began to disintegrate. This was just one of eight victories that Allard claimed during the Battle of Britain to add to a previous eight that he had scored flying Hurricanes during the Battle of France.

 A pair of Fw190F fighters during the winter of 1943. The Fw190F and G had become the Luftwaffes standard fighter-bomber for ground attack.  The Fw190F was very effective in this role. Additional armour protection was given to ground-attack variants and the G version also could carry a single 4,000-pound (1,800-kg) bomb or numbers of smaller bombs. The Fw190 was also used as a successful night fighter during the autumn and early winter of 1943–44, using conventional daylight methods to attack RAF bombers after searchlights had illuminated them.

 With the familiar Lincolnshire countryside beckoning, a Lancaster of the famous 617 Dambusters Squadron, makes its final approach after a raid on Germany, late summer 1944. Gerald Coulsons painting Summer Harvest winds the clock back sixty years, recreating a typical East Anglian countryside scene in late 1944. With the sun well above the horizon, a Lancaster comes thundering in on finals after a gruelling night precision bombing mission over Germany. Below, farm workers busy gathering the summer harvest, stop to marvel at the sheer power and majesty of the mighty aircraft, and to dwell briefly on what horrors its crew may have endured on their perilous journey.
