The River Class destroyer marked the break between torpedo boats and true destroyers and set the destroyer programmes of Britain and other major naval powers until 1916. The class served the Royal Navy well and was used during WWI for patrol and escort duties. due to their higher silhouette which made them more visible they were less suited for surprise torpedo attacks. The River Class destroyers were built by various boat yards including Palmer, Yarrow, Hawthorn Leslie, Laird, Thornycroft and White.

HMS Ribble

On the afternoon of the 27th April 1908 , the eastern destroyer Flotilla, consisting of 15 vessels, in company with the scouts HMS Adventure and HMS Attentive, left  Harwich for the purpose of firing exercise and night ,maneuvers. a little after midnight all the vessels having their lights masked, HMS Gala one of the destroyers came into collision  with HMS Attentive being struck by the latter's ram in the after part of the engine room and cut in two. Fortunately in this case all the crew were saved, except Engineer Lieutenant F A Fletcher, who was drowned. HMS Attentive afterwards came into collision with another of the destroyers HMS Ribble which received damage sufficiently serious to oblige her to put back to sheerness. The fore part of HMS Gala sunk almost immediately, but the after part, with all the  crew clinging to it remained afloat for some time, sinking while an attempt was being made to tow it into shallow water.

HMS Eden

HMS Eden - Name History

The second “EDEN” is a turbine torpedo-boat destroyer, launched at Hawthorn Leslie’s Yard in 1903.  She is of 555 tons, 7000 horse-power, and 25 knots speed.  Her length, beam, and draught were 220ft., 23ft., and 9ft.  Early in the morning of January 28th, 1910, this destroyer, while commanded by Lieutenant Oliver M. F. Stokes, broke away from her moorings in bad weather, and sank at the Harbour Jetty, under East Cliff, Dover.  She was got afloat again on January 30th.

HMS Dee

HMS Dee

HMS Dee - Name History

The fourth “DEE” is a twin-screw torpedo-boat destroyer, built at Palmers Yard at Jarrow and launched on the Tyne in 1903.  She is of 545 tons, 7000 horse-power, and 27 knots speed.  Her length, beam, and draught were 225ft., 23ft., and 10ft.  In September 1905 the “Dee,” while commanded by Lieutenant and Commander Harold E. Sulivan, and in company with the “Exe,” demonstrated her good qualities by successfully passing through a severe typhoon between Wei-hai-wei and Shanghai.  At the beginning of the passage the barometer stood at 30.20, and there was only a slight breeze.  In two days the glass had dropped to 27.78 and the wind had increased to force 11.  By the third day the barometer and wind were both normal.  An observer in the “Exe,” who was watching the “Dee,” noted that “. . .The extraordinary attitudes she assumed, and the conditions she went through, were more interesting than re-assuring.  At times she would be poised on her crest of a sea, her fore part high and dry (so to speak), leaving her keel visible up to the conning tower; the after part also naked, showing her propellers racing in the air.  The she would take a dive, an intervening wave would blot out this merry picture, and then to one’s relief as the wave passed by, a mast would appear waving on the other side until, thank goodness, one would catch sight of her funnels and then her hull, still above water. . .”  The “Dee,” was sighted at a bad period f the typhoon by a passing mail steamer.  The passengers gave the little ship up as lost, and it is said that a clergyman among them offered up prayers for the repose of their souls. The commanding officer of the “Dee,” was much struck by the contrast afforded by the blue sky and comparative calm which he experienced in the centre of the storm, and by the number of kingfishers and other land birds which took refuge on board the ship when she got into this calm vortex.  The ship was in situation of considerable peril for some forty-eight hours, and was only saved by good work of her builders, and the seamanlike skill of her Commander.  The whole affair reflected the greatest possible credit on the British destroyer officers, and the reader who wishes to read fuller details will find them in the second edition of Admiral Sir Christopher Cradock’s Whispers from the fleet, where they appear in the form of a letter from Commander Allan F. Everett of the “Exe,” who was the senior officer of the two vessels.

HMS Arun

HMS Arun - Name History

The Arun is a twin-screw torpedo-boat destroyer, launched at Birkenhead in 1903.  She is of 550 tons, 7000 horsepower, and 27 knots speed.  Her length, beam, and draught were 225ft, 23ft, and 10ft.  On August 13th, 1904, the “Arun” while commanded by commander Reginald Y. Tyrwhitt, collided with the torpedo-boat destroyer “Decoy” off the Scilly Island.  The “Decoy” sank and was never recovered, but no lives were lost.

 On 31st August 1944, 6 Mosquitoes of 305 Polish Squadron, Lasham, 2nd TAF were led by Wing Commander Orlinski to attack oil refineries at Nomexy, south of Nancy, France. Diving down and releasing their bombs before escaping at tree top height they destroyed 4 large containers and several smaller ones. All aircraft safely returned after their four and a half hour sortie. Fl Lt Eric Atkins DFC(bar) KW(bar) and his navigator Fl Lt Majer can be seen exiting the area to reform on the other 3 Mosquitoes who have already finished their bombing run. This was Atkins 61st operation, finishing the war with 78 ops over 3 tours.

 If you had the height, you controlled the battle. If you came out of the sun, the enemy could not see you. If you held your fire until you were very close, you seldom missed. These three basic rules contributed to the prowess in aerial combat of some of the most successful fighter pilots in history and seldom were they more valuable than when outnumbered. Between July and October 1940 the brave young pilots of RAF Fighter Command were under intense pressure from the constant attacks of the Luftwaffe and the Hawker Hurricane was <i>the</i> machine of the Battle of Britain, accounting for 80 percent of Allied victories.  In this painting, Hurricanes of 32 Sqn climb high into the morning sky, gaining Height and Sun in an attempt to take the advantage over the onslaught of enemy fighters - August, 1940.  This image captures the surreal calmness above the clouds, belying the fury of action and ultimate sacrifices made in those crisp blue skies.

 Flying as Leader of B Flight, 41 Sqn, on 15th August 1940, Pilot Officer Ted Shipman and the rest of his flight found themselves among a mass of Messerschmitt Bf.110s that had been detailed to escort a bomber force of Heinkel He111s on a raid on the North of England.  Having made one head-on attack on one of the Bf.110s, Shipman manoeuvred his Spitfire Mk.1 onto the tail of another and fired a long burst into it.  This was M8+CH of Oberleutnant Hans-Ulrich Kettling of 1./ZG76 and rear Gunner / Radio Operator O/ Gefr Volk, whose starboard engine burst into flames and disappeared into the dense cloudbase.  Shipman claimed this initially as a probable, but it was later confirmed as a victory when the aircraft was found to have crash landed at Streatham Nr Barnard Castle.  Spitfire K9805 (EB-L) is depicted breaking off the attack as Kettling's stricken Bf.110 begins to burn.  Ted Shipman would go on to serve with the Royal Air Force until December 1959 retiring as a Wing Commander.  Ted would also go onto become friends with  Hans-Ulrich Kettling, the pilot he shot down.

 Regarded by some in the Air Ministry as a failed fighter, the mighty Hawker Typhoon was unrivalled as a ground attack aircraft, especially in the crucial months immediately prior to – and after – D-Day when squadrons of Typhoons operated in 'cab ranks' to smash the German infrastructure and smooth the passage of the invading allied force.

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.
