Thanks Kizme,

 

Much appreciated.

Does anyone know anything of her WW1 service, etc.?

Quick highlights:

 

Completed on 15/9/15 and joined 11th Flotilla, attached to the Grand Fleet.  Present at Jutland, but not engaged. Her Flotilla was on the disengaged side of the Fleet.

 

Moved in 1918 to 2nd Flotilla at Londonderry/Derry.

Thanks everyone but obviously not much detail on this ship anywhere.

Seems her commander at Jutland, Lieutenant-Commander Gerald C. Harrison, needed some chasing up about station keeping on the morning before the battle. This is all the Jutland Official Despatches have on Manners! She was at back of her Division in the deployment, with two other Divisions and the Battle Fleet between her and the German Fleet, to port of the leading Battle Squadron. Someone had to be there!
