Royal Navy Sloops.  History of the Royal Naval Sloops from the early Fantome, Osprey and Doterel classes of the 19th Century to the Bittern and Black Swan Classes of the Second World War.

Royal Navy Sloops came back into existence soon after the outbreak of world war one, when the Admiralty realised it required extra ships for general service  which could be used for mine sweeping, escort duties.  The Sloops were used exclusively for Mine sweeping until 1917 when they were re assigned for Convoy duties as well.

           In 1875 the “Fantome” landed a force of men under the command of Lieutenant Charles Napier Robinson  at La Union, San Salvador, Central Amercia to protect His Britannic Majesty’s Consulate against insurgents.  And in the following year this same Lieutenant C.N. Robinson, who subsequently made a great and lasting mark on the naval literature of his time, landed and placed in position the guns, ect., for Captain Cook’s monument at Kealakakua Bay, Hawaii.           In 1889 the “Fantome” was sold.

The second “EGERIA” was a 4-gun screw sloop launched at Pembroke in 1873.  She was of 940 tons, 1011 horse-power, and 11 knots speed.  Her length, beam, and draught were 160ft., 31ft., and 14ft.   In 1875 the “Egeria,” commanded by Commander Ralph Lancelot Turton, proceeded to Perak, as one of a squadron of six ships under Captain Alexander Buller with his senior officer’s pennant in “Modeste,” to take part in an expedition against the murderers of Mr. J. W. Birch, the British resident in Perak.  While the troops and a naval brigade advanced on the upper reaches of the Perak River simultaneously from two points, the “Egeria” blockaded the Perak Littoral, and sent her boats up the Kurow River.  These boats destroyed or carried off some guns, arms, and ammunition  which might have been useful to the enemy.  Severe punishment was inflicted on the natives, but the actual murderers were not brought to account for some time afterwards.  This vessel acted for many years in the Surveying Service, and in November 1911 she was put up to public auction at Esquimalt, and sold to the Vancouver branch of the Navy League for £1416.

 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.
