Just Google "Monitor HMS 33 last Gallipoli vessel". You will find lots of information there.

Thanks Cueball, interesting history, especially the connection with Bar boats on the Clyde, with which I am familiar having served on Barleycorn in Rosyth and Barholm in Aden.

Will have to make the effort to get over to Portsmouth later in the year.

There is also a photo of the ship in dry dock in the gallery. Have a look, type in HMS M33 in the search box.

Thanks Dave, that is where I first saw it on south today. I was surprised to see the restoration is well advanced. Since my grandfather was at Galipolli I was interested if the ship featured in rescuing any of his regiment. I will try the Hampshire Regt.,museum in Winchester to see if they know any thing. I appreciate there were probably many other ships there too. Being a monitor they were probably providing covering fire to enable the soldiers to be evacuated. Some years ago I read a book on the whole affair I reckon he was lucky to live to fight another day!
I believe his next battle was the Somme. He survived that too.
Brian.
