Peter in the belly of the beast.

Peter in the belly of the beast. Rebreatherpro-Training

So this is the photo Mr McCamley was throwing all the toys out the pram about, as he wanted me to put it on Facebook weeks ago ;-) So here he is the main man Peter inside the belly of the beast HMS Audacious.

HMS Audacious was a King George V class Super-Dreadnought Battleship, measuring 596ft in length, grossed 23.000 tons and had a crew of 900. Armoury included ten 13.5 inch guns, sixteen 4 inch guns, three 21 inch torpedo tubes.

She was the first principal casualty in the First World War as she struck a mine laid by German Norddeutscher Lloyd liner SS Berlin, while leaving Lough Swilly at 08.45 on a gunnery exercise. The mine exploded on her port side just forward of her aft engine room bulkhead.

Unsuccessful attempts were made to tow her back into Lough Swilly. Her crew were evacuated on to HMS Liverpool and the White Star liner SS Olympic. She eventually sank at 21.00. No lives were lost. Her commander was Captain Dampier.
