1904 - Launch of BRITANNIA
10th December. Saw the launching of another battleship, HMS Britannia, by Lady Londonderry.
She had the distinction of being the last British warship to be lost during World War I, when on the 9th November 1918 just west of Gibraltar she was torpedoed by the German submarine UB 50 and sank 3½ hours later. The war ended on the 11th November 1918.
