HMS Raglan

Shown here is a rare view of the monitor HMS Raglan (ex-HMS Lord Raglan, EX-m3, ex-Robert E Lee, ex-M3) being towed down the River Clyde on 21st June, 1915 after having left Harland & Wolf's Govan yard, she is still bearing the name M3 (on the quarter, not visible in this view), although she had already been renamed Lord Raglan that very day, before becoming plain Raglan on 23rd June, 1915. Also seen here overtaking HMS Raglan is the destroyer HMS Moon, which had been recently completed by Yarrow's. Taken from Big Gun Monitors.
