Three Cruisers

Early in the morning of 22 September 1914, three Chatham Division cruisers, HMS ABOUKIR, HMS HOGUE and HMS CRESSY, were spotted by a single German submarine, U9, while on patrol off the Hook of Holland. In little under two hours, U9 had torpedoed and sunk all three ships.

This digital exhibition is a memorial to all those affected by this loss and a resource to help people to find out more.
