    HMS DREADNOUGHT NEARING COMPLETION-1905.jpg

    Hi all!
    This is just to say that I am fortunate to have a huge database of Warship pictures.
    Not just of RN ships but also those from other navies.
    Obviously many of those would coverthe First World War.
    If any member has a particular need to fill let me know here and I will always do my best to help.

    Here is a picture of HMS Dreadnought nearing completion...

    This is just a further reminder to all forum members that if you are looking for pictures of any WW1 warship then I can probably help you.
    Either ask in this thread, or if you would rather send me a PM [personal message] and I will get straight back to you.

    I don't think I have seen number four on HMS Woolston - Have you Kitty?

    Thanks for making this a sticky, Annie + other moderators.

    Just a reminder - any member looking for a good picture of any particular Warship just leave a post outlining your requirement and I will do my best to provide you with one!
    My database/collection is not just Royal Navy orientated but also covers other navies as well as Liners and merchant ships.

    I show the WW1 British destroyer Flying Fish - launched in 1897 and sold for scrapping during 1919.


    Best wishes,

    Cally.

    Certainly Annie.

    Most of the pictures I have are of the USS Jacob Jones [DD130] that was launched in early 1918 to replace the Jacob Jones that you were referring to [DD61].

    Anyway here are two pictures the first taken during 1916 and the second of her actually sinking after she was torpedoed on the 6th December 1917.

    Cally certainly came up trumps for me when I asked for pics for a possible future modelling project!

    Hi Cally !

    Do you happen to know anything about HMS Whelp ?

    Thanks in advance !

    Annie :)

    Hi Annie - unfortunately you are in the wrong war I think!

    The only serving HMS Whelp that I know of was a W & Z class destroyer, built by Hawthorn Leslie and launched 3rd June 1943. She served in the Home fleet until 1945 then transferred to the the Pacific Ocean fleet. [Photo below]

    In 1952 she was sold to South Africa.

    The reason why I described her as "the only serving" HMS Whelp is because there were plans for a modified W class destroyer of that name toward the end of WW1, but was finally cancelled in spring 1919.
