Can anyone recall the name oif the Portsmouth monitor - similar to HMS Roberts at Devonport?
Many thanks

I dont think that class ever had names ..I think they were always referred to as M..number as appropriate. Janes Fighting Ships of WW1 would seem to indicate that as well. I think only the larger Monitors actually had names. Hope that helps.

Many thanks for the information, I do appreciate it. I recall seeing the Abercrombie at Portsmouth at a Navy Days and as soon as the name appeared I could have kicked myself! Again many thanks.

The monitor at Portsmouth is M29 which at one stage was called Minerva, dates from WW1. Think she was built for Gallipoli.
