HMS Highflyer

HMS Highflyer - Name History

The fourth “HIGHFLYER” is an 8-gun twin-screw cruiser, launched at Govan in 1898.  She is of 5600 tons, 10,000 horse-power, and 20 knots speed.  Her length, beam, and draught were 350ft., 54ft., and 20ft.  From November 1902 to March 1903 the “Highflyer,” commanded by Captain Arthur H. Christian flying the flag of Rear-Admiral Sir Charles Drury, was at the head of the squadron of six ships which took part in the Somaliland campaign in various coastal capacities.  The ships assisted in landing troops and stores, in transport work, and in the prevention of delivery of munitions of war to the enemy.  Three officers attached to the “Highflyer” were landed, and assisted the progress of the campaign with a wireless telegraphy apparatus.  In August 1914 the “Highflyer,” commanded by Captain Henry T. Buller, was employed on the north -west African coast protecting British trade.  On August 27 she met the German armed ship “Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse” off the Oro River, and after a short engagement in which the “Highflyer” lost one man killed and about six wounded, the German ship was sunk.

HMS Hyacinth

HMS Hyacinth - Name History

The fifth “HYACINTH” is an 11-gun twin-screw cruiser, launched at Glasgow in 1898.  She is of 5600 tons, 10,000 horse-power, and 20 knots speed.  Her length, beam, and draught were 350ft., 54ft., and 20ft.  In 1904 the “Hyacinth,” commanded by Captain the Hon. Horace Hood, and flying the flag of Rear-Admiral George Atkinson-Willes, was at the head of a squadron of three ships which took part in the Somaliland campaign.  On April 20th the “Hyacinth,” and “Fox” arrived off the Gulluli River after dark, and on the following day a small landing party went ashore under Flag-Captain Hood.  One hundred and twenty-five men of the Hampshire Regiment accompanied the sailors.  The brigade advanced upon Fort Illig in face from a brisk fire from rifles, and two old fashioned cannon loaded with mixed iron, and finally carried the place at the point of the bayonet.  The “Hyacinths’” subsequently cleared the village and some caves at the bottom of the cliffs.  The enemy left between 60 and 70 dead, and the British re-embarked with a loss of 3 killed and 11 wounded.  Fort Illig was then reduced, and the British ships withdrew.  At various dates the “Hyacinth,” while commanded by Captain J.D Dick and flying the flag of Rear-Admiral E.J.W. Slade, was employed in the prevention of the gun-running traffic in the Persian Gulf.  760 rifles were captured off the Jagin River  on one occasion.

A Boat Setting Out From HMS Highflyer with Surgical And Medical Aid For The Enemys Wounded


A Boat Setting Out From HMS Highflyer with Surgical And Medical Aid For The Enemys Wounded

As the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse was sinking three boatloads of men were seen to leave her and make for the shore. The Highflyer at once signalled that the enemy might abandon their ship without interference, and as the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse had ceased fire, the Highflyer ceased also. Two boats were then dispatched from the Highflyer with surgeons, sick berth attendants, and medical store to assist the enemys wounded. Shortly afterwards the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse heeled over and sank in about fifty feet of water.

The English fleet pursued the Armada up the English Channel and, as darkness fell, Vice Admiral Drake broke off and captured the Spanish galleon Rosario, Admiral Pedro de Valdes and the crew.  The Rosario was known to be carrying substantial funds to pay the Spanish Army in the Low Countries.  Drakes ship had been leading the English pursuit of the Armada by means of a lantern.  By extinguishing this for the capture, Drake put the fleet into disarray overnight.  On the night of 29th July 1588, Vice Admiral Drake organised fire-ships, causing most of the Spanish captains to break formation and sail out of Calais . The next day, Drake was present at the Battle of Gravelines.  English losses were comparatively few, and none of their ships were sunk.

 During a patrol on 6th July 1918, Christiansen spotted a British submarine on the surface of the Thames Estuary. He immediately turned and put his Hansa-Brandenburg W.29 floatplane into an attacking dive, raking the submarine C.25 with machine gun fire, killing the captain and five other crewmen. This victory was added to his personal tally, bringing his score to 13 kills by the end of the war, even though the submarine managed to limp back to safety. Christiansen survived the war and went on to work as a pilot for the Dornier company, notably flying the giant Dornier Do.X on its inaugural flight to New York in 1930. He died in 1972, aged 93.

This signed art print was produced at the end of 2000 after the Olympics of that year, and has been sold out from the publisher for many years.  We have the last few publishers proofs of this edition available.  This superb art print celebrates the ultimate achievement for any athlete, the winning of an Olympic gold medal.  In the modern era athletes from Great Britain have won 178 gold medals and Gary Keane's montage celebrates some of the highlights from those achievements.  It captures the determination and effort required to win, as well as the euphoria when the realisation that a life long dream has finally become a reality.  This print is not only a tribute to those featured but also to all other competitors and medal winners who have strived to bring glory and honour to Great Britain.  As the Olympic Games enter a new century and a new chapter in history, it is hoped that this reminder of past glories will also help to inspire those competing for gold in the future.
