HMS ORLANDO.. While visiting England some years ago, I came upon a ship's wheel that has written in gold leaf around the supporting rim the name "Taku Forts China 1900" and continuing around the designation of "HMS Orlando". I would like to have some documentation, if possible, on the role of the HMS Orlando during the Boxer Rebellion. If anyone has any information please contact me at brucecr@aol.com
