HMS Agincourt


HMS Agincourt

Ex Rio de Janeiro Brazil. Scrapped 19th December 1922.

HMS Agincourt. Due to the South American rivalry between Brazil, Argentina and Chile, the Brazilian government ordered a battleship from Armstrongs to be called Rio de Janeiro. The design was changed after a change of government to incorporate seven main turrets making this a very long battleship. The design was accepted and laid down in September 1911, but within the year the Brazilian government were looking for another country to buy the battleship and it was eventually sold to Turkey at the beginning of 1914 for 2,725,000. The battleship was to be called Sultan Osman I for the Ottoman empire. The ship was completed when world war one broke out but was not handed over to Turkey by Winston Churchill. The admiralty had been told to delay and slow down the final construction in the months of June and July. The battleship went on a number of sea trials; far more than was expected by the Turkish ffficers and technicians, ending up on the Forth near the railway bridge on 18th July. In the morning the battleship sailed back to the Walker yard arriving. On 27th July the Turkish steamer the Neshid Pasha arrived with the Turkish crew and tied up opposite the battleship. They were given the date of the 2nd of August for the handover, but on the 1st of August a detachment of Sherwood Foresters came marching through the gates with fixed bayonets and went onto the battleship. The Turkish officers knew what was happening and no resistance was met. The Turkish crew who were on board left and boarded the Neshid Pasha, which then sailed from the berth. On August the 3rd the crew of the Royal Yacht Victoria and Albert got the signal to proceed to Tyneside for the commissioning of the new battleship. It was to be commanded by captain Nicholson. The battleship joined the 4th battle squadron of the Grand Fleet on the 7th September 1914, transferring to the 1st Battle Squadron in time for the Battle of Jutland, firing 144 rounds from her 12 inch guns at the battle, while receiving no damage or casualties during the action. In 1918 she joined the 2nd Battle Squadron and in 1919 was put on the disposal list. Recommissioned at Rosyth in 1919 as a experimental ship, and finally as a large depot ship with the removal off all main gun turrets except no.1 and 2. All work on the alterations were stopped in 1921, and Agincourt was scrapped in 1922.
