HMS Tiger was the last battlecruiser to have mixed firing for her boilers. The ship could accommodate up to 3,800 tons of fuel oil in her double bottom. The proposed sister-ship HMS Leopard was cancelled. HMS Tiger was so badly damaged at the battle of Dogger Bank in January 1915 that she was reported sunk by German propaganda. She was badly damaged at the Battle of Jutland. after being hit ten times  but resumed duties with the Battle Cruiser Fleet after repairs. In company with HMS Hood, HMS Tiger was despatched to the Baltic to attack the Bolsheviks but was recalled while in Swedish waters. She was reduced to reserve in August 1921 and from February 1924 was used as a gunnery training ship. HMS Tiger came out of reserve between April 1926 and April 1931 and after another spell in reserve was scrapped in 1932.

MESSAGES

JAMES HARGREAVES... I am researching a grand uncle called James Hargreaves. He is reputed to have died while serving on board HMS Tiger, in an "incident" during an exercise pre-1914. There is also reputed to be a postcard commemorating the "incident", but I wonder whether it might have been a small scale action, perhaps somewhere in the Empire. I would be very grateful for any information anyone might have which  can help me pin down the fate of James Hargreaves.  Many thanks for your help. Jeremy Cooper  contact here  

TOM WILLIAMS - My Grandfather served on HMS Tiger during 1914-1917. Does anyone have any  information about Tom. If you can help please contact Peter Williams - peter@growharp.demon.co.uk   

STOKER, A. SOPER..  I am an ex-REME soldier living in Aabenraa in Denmark. I have come across the grave of Stoker A. Soper from HMS Tiger who was buried on June 16 1920. He shares the grave with Chief Stoker Sidney Hingston from HMS Hood. Can anyone give me information on either man. Write to Paul Bellfield at,  pbsmg@hotmail.com

GEORGE JORDAN - my grandfather, was a Stoker on HMS Tiger at Battle of Jutland and would have been about 48 years old at the time - he may be in the photo sent in by Malcom Bibbings - any info regarding the number of Stokers that would be in the Crew,  any general info about  the ship circa 1916-18, and any further details about the posted photo by Mr. Bibbings would be most welcome - email to George Jardine, 2jardines@sympatico.ca 

P.C.W. HOWE.. My grandfather served as Engineer Commander on HMS Tiger from 1919-1922. I would be grateful for any information about my grandfather (including service record) or photographs of the ship. Contact me at  camelot.craft@virgin.net

ALFRED WILLIAM CHAMBERS.. My grandfather served in the Royal Navy from 1911 till 1925. He served on HMS Tiger from 3rd October 1914 to 5th Nov 1917. I recently obtained an original copy of his service record following its release to the PRO. The MOD statement is very pithy and it was not until I started research on the ships did I realise that he participated in the 1915 and 1916 actions. I have several photographs of him and other shipmates sadly not on the Tiger (HMS Castor 1922-24) and would be delighted to hear from anyone who has scenes of HMS Tiger.
