HMS Amerthyst

Dear Fred

Just wanted to mention that HMS Amerthyst, a light cruiser, was launched (from memory) in 1903. I understand that this was the first successful turbine powered warship and was retained by the RN until 1920 odd.

My point being that the Admiralty appear to have been wholly committed to turbines, which is the thrust of your arguement.
