Description

H.M.S. 'Humber', 1914. Model. During WWI a number of heavily armed, shallow draught vesels were built or aquired for the British Navy. Known as monitors, they were intended principally for long range bombardment of the coast of Belgium. The 'Humber' was one of three monitors which were under construction by Vickers at barrow-in- Furnes for the Brazillian Government, but were taken over by the British Navy. They were 265 ft long, with a displacement of 1260 tons, and armed with two 6-inch guns mounted in an armoured turret, with two 4.7-inch guns aft. The 'Humber' also served in the Dardanelles and the Gulf of Aquaba.
