Recommended Posts

The SS Armadale Castle became an Armed Merchant Cruiser, requisitioned 2nd August 1914 and returning to commercial service in 1919.

I have all the details I need about this ship other than a photograph.

Can anyone provide one please?

The Armadale Castle undertook the initial bombardment/s of the German wireless stations in GSWA during the middle of August 1914 and I would be interested in any detail.

Very likely to be HMS Cedric or HMS Celtic and definitely 1914 or later.

See
