Dreadnoughts The ships and men who built lived and fought in them

This exhibition is will run until February 2007. It is a commemoration of the centenary of the completion of HMS Dreadnought and also a comparison of shipbuilding techniques between 1906 and 2006. The exhibition has been supported by VT shipbuilding who have brought back the building of ships to Portsmouth after a break of nearly 40 years.

HMS Dreadnought

HMS Dreadnought was the first of her kind. Her construction commenced on 2nd October 1905. The hull was launched on the 10th February and the ship was completed in a record time, officially after only a year and a day in December 1906. HMS Dreadnought gave her name to a new type of battleship, all the ships of her type that followed being known as dreadnoughts. The navies of the world immediately sought to copy and improve upon her design, and she started a naval building race that only ended after the conclusion of the First World War.

Towards the end of the 19th century, battleship design had settled down to give a fairly standard type, which all the major navies followed. It gave a ship of around 15,000 tons armed with two twin gun turrets mounting heavy guns of around 12"calibre, backed up by a battery of quick firing guns of about 6"calibre. They were protected by heavy armour up to 14" thick and driven by reciprocating steam engines to give a top speed of around 18 knots. They had a crew of around 750-800 men

HMS Dreadnought at War
Quote:
HMS Dreadnought, brainchild of Admiral Sir John Fisher, was launched in 1906. The one thing that set Dreadnought apart was her battery of ten 12-inch guns, of which eight could be fired on either broadside. Soon all the major naval powers Ė and some minor ones, too Ė were building or buying dreadnoughts, and the dreadnought race between Britain and Germany contributed to the growing tensions between these two nations.

The Dreadnought Project is a naval history wiki focusing on naval history in the period 1880-1920, with side-projects in 3D modeling and simulation.


Quote:
The wiki started in 2006 and comprises over 2,000 articles, receiving edits almost every day. It is intended to augment, rather than replace, the information available on Wikipedia.
Though Wikipedia has many well-written articles on the ships and navies of this period, it has policies that bar its editors from using primary source materials and from doing original research. By contrast, our articles exploit our large and growing library (currently well over 50,000 pages) of original documents, affording a natural opportunity to advance public knowledge by bringing more information out of the world of archives and closed collections and into a place where a Google search can find it. Unlike paper publications, we are not hindered by page counts and we can freely go back and fix errors. We find this a rewarding way to explore history.
