Lady Elizabeth ? Stanley Harbour

?Lady Elizabeth?, an iron barque of 1,155 tons built by Robert Thompson Jr. of Southwick, Sunderland and launched on 4 June 1879. Damaged in a storm in 1912,she limped to Stanley where she grounded on Uraine Rock just off Volunteer Point, suffering a 6-foot (1.8 m) break in the hull and keel along with a 1-foot (30 cm) hole. She was deemed uneconomical to repair and used as a coal hulk until breaking loose in a storm and drifting to Whalebone cove, where she resides to this day, in the Falkland Islands. Date: 1984

The Battle of Pacocha'; Action between HMS 'Shah' and 'Ameth Featured Print

The Battle of Pacocha'; Action between HMS 'Shah' and 'Ameth

Engraving showing the battle between HMS 'Shah' and 'Amethyst' and the Peruvian Ironclad turret ship 'Huascar' on the 29th May 1877. The 'Huascar' had been taken over by some Peruvian revolutionaries and declared a 'pirate' by the Peruvian government. The 'Shah' and 'Amethyst' were ordered to protect British Merchant Shipping and after the 'Huascar' had stopped several British merchant ships, the Royal Navy decided to hunt down the 'Huascar'. In the action depicted, the 70 guns of the British ships were unable to do much damage to the 'Huascar' as she was an heavily-built ironclad. In return the gunnery crew of the 'Huascar' was not well drilled enough to hit the British ships much. In desperation the 'Shah' launched a Whitehead torpedo at the 'Huascar', but the Peruvian ship was able to dodge it with some ease. The battle became a stalemate and the two sides slipped away after the fall of darkness. Reputedly this was the last action by a wooden warship, firing a broadside of muzzle-loading guns and the first use of a torpedo in anger.
