Prince Louis of Battenberg with his sons

Prince Louis of Battenberg (1854-1921), British First Sea Lord in 1914 with his sons, George (right) and Louis (Lord Louis Mountbatten). During the first few months of World War I, anti-German feeling among the British public forced him to resign. The Prince had taken British nationality at the age of fourteen and those who knew him had no doubt of his loyalty. Prince George of Battenberg continued on active service and the younger Prince Louis (left) joined him as a midshipman shortly after the Battle of Jutland. When the same tide of anti-German feeling forced the royal family to abandon German names and titles their family name became 'Mountbatten'. Prince Louis of Battenberg was married to Princess Victoria of Hesse, eldest daughter of Princess Alice.

Burnt out liner L'Atlantique, successfully brought into port

The burnt out liner, L'Atlantique successfully brought into port at Cherbourg. The fire broke out in the early hours of 4th January 1933, at 6am the abandon ship order was given. The liner had no passengers on board, only crew, many were picked up in the British steamer, Ford Castle. One lifeboat was thrown into the sea, drowning some of the occupants. For hours the burning liner drifted, the terrific heat prevented slavage crafts from approaching. Eventually a French ship securred a line and brought her into Cherbourg.
