My grandfather Arthur Reeve was an Engine Room artificer on TB18 'sub hunting in the Adriatic'. I know that she was at the fire in Salonica as my grandfather says the engineers went ashore to help restore services. He was present when LZ85 was destroyed and had a piece of it as a souvenir. He claimed it had been brought down by TB18's guns but that HMS Agammenon signalled to hold back on the claim and effectively took the credit. I'd like to find out more about this. After she was sold off, the crew got home on a leaky tug which was in great danger of sinking. 

Thanks to Mike Reeve for this story.
