Two small ships from WW1

Blog looks at the First World War through the history of Two Small Ships

Follow the history of two ships, Torpedo Boat No 1 and Monitor M30, during the First World War in this blog from The Two Small Ships (WW1) Society.

Whose guns sank M30?

It is often said that the history of wars is always written by the victors so it is good that this article relies heavily on the researches of Gunter Hartnagel, an expert on the use of German artillery in the Gallipoli campaign, with whom I hope I can remain in in contact, and Peter Jung who was working for the Austrian State/War Archive War Archive when he died in 2003.

Shortly after Admiral Souchon arrived in Constantinople on 10 August, 1914, with the German warships Goeben and Breslau, he asked for additional support from his government in providing a defence for the Dardanelles, a request which supported by Enver Pasha, the Turkish Minister of War, and was repeated during the fight for the Gallipoli peninsula. However, little material help was able to pass through the Balkans until Serbia was defeated in the autumn of 1915, and supply lines were opened. Two Austro-Hungarian artillery units, the Haubitzbatterie No.36 and Motormorserbatterie No.9, were then transported down the Danube and, arriving on station at the end of November, played a vital part in the final 5 weeks of conflict before the last invading Allied soldiers were driven from the Gallipoli peninsula during the night of 8/9 January, 1916.
