THE KIPLING SOCIETY


How well do you know
your Kipling ?

We now saw that the enemy battle cruisers had made another turn so that we were brought 45 degrees on their port bow at only about 11,000 yards from them an ideal position for a torpedo attack so the Captain closed the enemy, and when 8,000 yards from the leading enemy battle cruiser gave the signal to the torpedo tubes to fire and turned the ship to port to bring the sights on. Unfortunately, just at this moment the ship was struck amidships by a heavy shell, and was enveloped in clouds of escaping steam.
