Battleship histories. Royal naval battleship HMS Neptune. Battleship website dedicated to the history of HMS Neptune from its launch to its participation in major wars also notice board for Naval Enthusiasts and historians and descendants of crew of HMS Neptune.

HMS Neptune

Built at Portsmouth navy Dockyard and launched on the 30th September 1909. HMS Neptune was the first British Battleship to be able to fire all ten of her 12-inch guns broadside, by allowing the two wing turrets to fire across deck. But this was found to be of little advantage as it strained the hull.  HMS Neptune also failed to reach her contractual speed on trials, but did achieve (using Welsh coal ) a speed of 21.129 knots during her acceptance trials on the 17th November 1910. In May 1911 HMS Neptune became the flagship of the Commander-in-Chief of the Home Fleet and in May 1912 she joined the 1st Battle Squadron. She was still serving in this squadron when in April 1916 she collided with a merchant ship but was not seriously damaged. She was at the Battle of Jutland and was reported to have scored several hits on the German Battleship Lutzow. She did not have any casualties during the action.  On the 1st of February she was put into reserve and eventually scrapped in September 1922.

Displacement: 19,680 tons.   Speed: 21 knots.   Armament: Ten 12 inch guns in pairs, twenty 4 inch guns, four 3pdr guns, three 18 inch guns and 3 torpedo tubes.   Compliment: 759.
