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.

 Designed by the great Ernst Heinkel, the diminutive D.1 was an essential stop-gap that provided the Austro-Hungarian pilots with a front line fighter until they were able to re-equip with Albatros scouts in the Summer of 1917. This little aircraft performed well and was generally held in high regard by its pilots, although it did have some shortcomings, namely that forward vision was extremely limited and the Schwarzloses gun was completely concealed in the overwing pod that made it inaccessible in the air. Most unusual of all was its interplane strut arrangement, designed to reduce drag, which gave it the nicknames Starstrutter or Spider. These examples are shown passing above the German cruiser Derfflinger.

After taking Fort Ticonderoga on route he learned that Howe was leaving for Pennsylvania.  Becoming desperately short on supplies he decided to press on the Albany regardless but found the road blocked by a Continental army under Maj Gen Horatio Gates.  Burgoyne decided not to engage the enemys position frontally but to turn their left at Freemans Farm.  After a day of fierce fighting the British held the field but at a heavy price in casualties.  On the 7th October the Colonial army, after receiving continual reinforcements attacked Howes position (the battle became known as Bemis Heights) and he was forced to retire to Saratoga.

 In 1992 Matthew graduated in Geography from St. Catherine's College, Oxford, where he was President of the Oxford Rowing Club.  He took part in the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race in 1990 and 1991, when Oxford beat Cambridge by substantial distances.  Also in 1992, at the age of only 21, Matthew had his first taste of Olympic success, when in a coxless pair with partner Sir Steve Redgrave, he won the gold medal at the Barcelona Olympics.  Prior to that Olympic win he and Redgrave had enjoyed an unbeaten international season, and it was already obvious that Matthew was developing to become one of the world's greatest oarsmen.  At the Atlanta Olympics in 1996 the Pinsent / Redgrave duo won another gold medal and throughout the nineties their outstanding combination also brought them seven world championship golds.  Their unbroken run of success continued through to the millennium Olympic games in Sydney when Pinsent, again with Redgrave (now in a coxless four with James Cracknell and Tim Foster) again triumphed earning Pinsent his third Olympic gold medal.  The race in which he did it was voted Britain's greatest sporting moment and the crew secured themselves a very special place in the heart of the nation.  After Sydney, Matthew formed a seemingly invincible coxless pair partnership with James Cracknell MBE.  Undefeated throughout 2001, they went on to complete a unique feat in the history of rowing, by winning the coxless pair at the world championships in Lucerne, a mere two hours after winning the coxed pairs.  In the 2002 world championships in Seville they defended their coxless pairs title, beating an experienced Australian crew who had beaten them in Lucerne earlier in the year and breaking the world record by 4 seconds in the process.  On Saturday 21st August 2004 at the Athens Olympic games, Matthew Pinsent CBE entered Olympic history.  In one of the classic sporting moments of all time, he led the Great Britain coxless four to victory over the Canadian world champions by only eight hundredths of a second.  Matthew was awarded the MBE in the 1993 New Year's Honours List and the CBE in the New Year's Honours List 2003.  In the 2005 New Year's Honours List he was awarded a knighthood.

 Following the success of several French imports to Highbury, Arsene Wenger again turned to his home country in search of another midfield maestro.  Robert Pires was duly signed from Marseille in July 2000 in a £6 million deal.  Robert Pires has adjusted quickly to the English game.  Pires and his love affair with English football comes from the intensity of the game teamed with the passion from the Highbury fans.  On describing the fans' reaction when he scores, he said, <i>It's an unbelievablesensation to be standing on the pitch when the whole crowd erupts.</i>  For a man who played in a European championship final, and who won the World Cup, these words must sound sweet to the Highbury faithful.  Robert Pires received the recognition his talent deserved on winning the Football Writer's Player of the Year Award in the 2001/02 season.
