At the outbreak of World War One, the First Fleet became the Grand Fleet, Neptune and was present at the Battle of Jutland in 1916. After the war she was quickly transferred to the reserve fleet and subsequently sold for scrap in 1922. Date: 1909

The Dreadnought Hoax, report in The Sketch Featured Print

The Dreadnought Hoax, report in The Sketch

Page from The Sketch magazine reporting on the Dreadnought hoax. The incident was a joke played by a group led by Horace de Vere Cole, including the writer Virginia Stephen (Woolf, seen far left in the bottom picture) who dressed up as the Emperor of Abyssinia and his party, and turned up out of the blue to inspect the battleship 'Dreadnought'. The group were 'received with the usual courtesies accorded to distinguished visitors, and were shown over the vessel.' The Dreadnought hoax was not the first time this group had played the joke. The top photograph shows the Abyssinian princes on an occasion when they visited the Mayor of Cambridge as the Sultan of Zanzibar and his suite. Date: 1910
