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.

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.

 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.

 Musa Qala, Afghanistan, 25th May 2008.  While returning to Sangin following an operation in support of 2 PARA battlegroup, the Vikings of 3rd Troop, Armoured Support Company, Royal Marines were the target of an enemy ambush. As the convoy began to cross the Helmand river the waiting Taliban engaged the convoy with RPGs, heavy machine gun and sniper fire. Amazingly despite this hail of fire no one was hit until tragically Marine Dale Gostick was killed and two others injured when his vehicle was blown up by a massive IED.

 It was Saturday 4th May 2002, the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.  Wonderful goals by Ray Parlour and Freddie Ljungberg for Arsenal were too much for their London rivals Chelsea to capture the FA Cup.  Four days later, on Wednesday 8th, Arsenal rode into Old Trafford.  This time a goal by Sylvain Wiltord on his 100th appearance for the club was enough for Arsene Wenger's team to overcome Manchester United and clinch the Premiership title, maintaining a record of scoring in every league game of the season.  For the second time in four years under their long-serving and inspirational captain Tony Adams, Arsenal had performed the classic double of English football, the third in their history making 2001-02, a season never to be forgotten.

 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.
