July 1914 Fleet Review at Spithead

On this day in 1914 our 4th cousin, Boy 1st Class, Alfred Maddison participated in the Fleet Review at Spithead in the Solent, serving aboard the Royal Navy Cruiser, HMS Hawke. Alfred signed up, age 15, for twelve years service in 1913. He initially trained at the shore establishment, stone frigate, HMS Ganges. Upon achieving his Boy 1st Class rating, Alfred was transferred to the HMS Hawke, one of nine Edgar-class Protected Cruisers, the oldest vessels in service during WWI.

The vessel, launched in 1891, was already outclassed in 1914 but had been returned from training duties to active service due to the expected outbreak of war. Prior to WWI, the only notable event in the Hawke’s career was her 1911 collision with RMS Titanic’s sister ship, the Olympic. Due to recruiting issues, and a lack of manpower, the Royal Navy crewed these legacy vessels with recalled reservists and young cadets like Alfred.

Alfred was born and raised in York, initially in a small tenement on Shaw’s Terrace just off Blossom Street, before the family relocated to a two-up two-down in Dringhouses. Alfred’s father worked as a joiner at the North Eastern Railway Carriage Works on Holgate Road while his mother raised eight children. Alfred was the eldest son and the only sibling old enough to serve in WWI. Within a year of enlistment he was participating in his first Fleet Review.

HMS Hawke along with the eight other Edgars joined the navy’s First Fleet Review of Spithead in the Solent. The Fleet Review was a formal inspection of the Royal Navy by the monarch, in this case King George V. There were three original reasons for holding a Fleet Review. The first is to mobilise the fleet for war and the second is to demonstrate to potential enemies and friendly powers the naval strength of the nation. The third cause that has developed since 1415 is to hold a celebration of a significant Royal occasion for instance a coronation or anniversary. This cements the relationship of the senior service to the monarch.

Europe was on edge as Germany had ordered the mobilization of its naval fleet and that action triggered a decisive step by Winston Churchill. Germany had not yet declared war on Russia, France or Britain, nor had it initiated its invasion of Belgium. The resulting decisive and dramatic step — Winston Churchill, First Lord of the Admiralty, recommended Herbert Asquith, Britain’s Prime Minister, to order the Royal Navy’s First Fleet to leave its anchorage at Portland, on England’s south coast, and to head for a safer location in Scapa Flow. The Fleet Review would provide Churchill with the justification for a full mobilization of the Royal Navy without officially mobilizing the fleet.

The bulk of the mobilised Fleet will be assembled at Spithead by the 18th July, and will not leave until the 20th July. His Majesty the King will be with the Fleet during this weekend, but there will be no formal review…

The photographs above may have been enhanced with additional vessels for propaganda purposes. However, in addition to minelayers, minesweeping gunboats, repair ships, depot ships for torpedo craft, and sea planes, ~200 ships of various classes were present, as follows:—

Thereafter the ships were not stood down but were held in readiness against the probability of war. Furthermore the Grand Fleet could then steam north, under cover of darkness, to Scapa Flow, the anchorage in the Orkney Islands north of Scotland. From this location, the Royal Navy could dominate the North Sea. The decision allowed the Royal Navy to be well-placed to counter any hostile action the Germans might take.

In August 1914, on the outbreak of the First World War, Hawke, together with the other Edgars from Queenstown, Ireland, formed the 10th Cruiser Squadron, operating on blockade duties between the Shetland Islands and Norway. To appreciate fully the disaster that befell HMS Hawke in October 1914 it is worth going back to a disaster that struck three old cruisers HMS Aboukir, HMS Hogue and HMS Cressy less than a month before. They were nicknamed the “Live Bait Squadron.”

During the early months of World War I the Royal Navy maintained a patrol of 1901-era Cressy class armoured cruisers in the area of the North Sea known as the Broad Fourteens. There was opposition to this patrol from many senior officers, on the grounds that the ships were very vulnerable to a raid by modern German surface ships. The Admiralty maintained the patrol on the grounds that destroyers were not able to maintain the patrol in the frequent bad weather and that there were insufficient modern light cruisers available. In the early hours of 20 September 1914 the cruisers HMS Euryalus, HMS Aboukir, HMS Hogue, and HMS Cressy, were preparing to go on patrol. The weather was too bad for destroyers to be at sea and unfortunately Euryalus had to drop out due to lack of coal and weather damage to her wireless. On the morning of Tuesday, 22 September 1914, the patrol was attacked by a submarine, U-9. The three cruisers HMS Aboukir, Hogue, and Cressy off the Dutch coast sunk one by one as each ship went in turn to the assistance of their sisters. A total of 837 men were rescued but 62 officers and 1,397 men, many of them reservists, were killed.

HMS Hawke, launched in 1891, was the nineteenth British warship to be given that name. She was a 12-gun twin-screw protected cruiser displacing 7,350 tons. The twin screws delivered 12,000 horsepower giving a top speed of 20 kt.

Protected cruisers, a type of cruising warship of the late-19th century, gained their description because an armoured deck offered protection for vital machine-spaces from fragments caused by shells exploding above them. Protected cruisers resembled armored cruisers, which had in addition a belt of armour along the sides.

In October, Alfred, HMS Hawke, and the 10th Cruiser Squadron were deployed further south in the North Sea to stop German warships from attacking a troop convoy from Canada. On 15 October, the squadron was on patrol off Aberdeen, deployed in line abreast at intervals of about 10 miles. Hawke stopped at 9:30am to pick up mail from sister ship Endymion. After recovering her boat with the mail, Hawke proceeded at 13 knots, without zig-zagging to regain her station, and was out of sight of the rest of the Squadron when at 10:30am a single torpedo was launched from the German submarine U-9. The torpedo struck Hawke on the starboard side causing two simultaneous explosions, she quickly capsized, and sent her to the bottom in less than eight minutes. The remainder of the squadron only realised anything was amiss, when, after a further unsuccessful attack on HMS Theseus, the squadron was ordered to retreat at high speed to the northwest, and no response to the order was received from Hawke.

Nearly 600 seamen, subsequently found themselves trapped or struggling to survive the freezing waters. One survivor commented –

I have never been on a ship so well equipped with lifesaving apparatus, but the way the vessel heeled over made it almost impossible to get the boats out. Many of the crew had scrambled on to the side of the sinking cruiser as she turned turtle and were sliding and diving into the sea.

Unnamed Survivor, HMS Hawke, October 1914

Several rafts had floated clear along with the mailboat cutter, but for the vast majority of the seamen, including Alfred Maddison, there was little hope. Hawke’s fate was not realised until later that day, and the first of 70 men to be rescued not picked up until early on Friday morning, almost 24 hours later. The destroyer HMS Swift, dispatched from Scapa Flow to search for Hawke, found a raft carrying one officer and twenty-one men, while a boat with a further forty-nine survivors was rescued by a Norwegian steamer. 524 officers and men died, including the ship’s captain, Hugh P. E. T. Williams.

50 lost crew members were Boy Sailors like Alfred, all under the age of 17. Each of their families would be notified of their son’s place on the De Ruvigny’s Roll of Honour, 1914-1919 and received his medals: WWI Star, Victory Medal, & British War Medal… For son, Alfred Maddison, Boy 1st Class, HMS Hawke, torpedoed by U-9 Submarine in the North Sea.
