Captain Larkin and the Turks: The Strategic Impact of the Operations of HMS Doris in Early 1915

Middle Eastern Studies,
Vol. 46, No. 1, 151Ė162, January 2010

As the Ottoman Empire entered the First WorldWar in November 1914 there were a
number of troubling events involving Armenians that served to convince the Turks
of impending Armenian insurgency. It is well known that in the Caucasus, numbers
of Armenian men fled to join the Czarís armies against the Ottoman Empire and
guerrilla warfare between Armenian bands and the Turks broke out on the frontier
near the Black Sea. It is less well known that the Ottomans were also extremely
concerned about Armenian activities in the area of Alexandretta (the modern
Turkish port of Iskenderun) particularly around Do® rtyol, a tiny railway stop and
village close by the Mediterranean Sea. This concern was mainly the result of the
operations of the HMS Doris in December 1914 and January 1915. This article uses
British, German, and Turkish archival sources to focus on the shipís operations in
the vicinity of Do® rtyol and on the strategic affect these had on Ottoman perceptions
of threats to the empire and on actual Ottoman responses. The Doris figures
prominently in two critical strategic outcomes Ė the relocation of the Armenians in
1915 and in the activation of three Ottoman army divisions for coastal defence and
internal security.
