HMS Challenger, Dar Es Salaam, 1917

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I am related to Alfred Charles Sykes, who was captain of HMS Challenger at Dar Es Salaam in August 1917. Sykes was made KCMG as a result, and died in 1933 as (I think) a Vice Admiral. The report in the Gazette makes interesting reading.

    I'm trying to find out more about him; but apart from the Gazette entries and some pictures of the ship I've drawn a blank.
