Feature Articles Terror and her Family, Part 3 Installment 2 [Operational Careers of LSV-3 to 6], by the late Robert S. Egan ---------------------------------- Cover: This painting illustrates the British battleship HMS Barfleur in dry dock at Hong Kong in 1900. At this period of time the vessel was the flagship of the Rear Admiral, China Station. The Royal Navy classified this ship as a second-class battleship. Barfleur was laid down in 1890 at the Royal Naval Dockyard, Chatham, and scrapped in 1910. The regal-appearing building in the left background is the Port Captain’s house, part of the then newly-completed dockyard facilities. The artist who painted this picture was our member the late Mr. Ian H. Marshall, ARIAS. This rendition of this ship appears in his book British Capital Ships, 1873-1946, copyright by Mr. Marshall. A number of years ago Mr. Marshall gave Warship International permission to use copies of his paintings. [A biographical remembrance of Mr. Marshall appears in W. I. Vol.57 (2019) No.2: 91-92.]
