The title says it all. What I'm looking for are images of British Pre-Dreadnoughts, Dreadnoughts and Super-Dreadnoughts at the end of The Great War and shortly after. I'm a fairly competent draughtsman and would really like to piece together profiles of British warships with all the paraphenalia of war and refits attatched. As a matter of course, I will post what I have here, starting with my already displayed image of;

H.M.S. Temeraire in 1917

That's an unusual shot. The ship looks so different. I have to imagine the two slotted blockhouses up high are secondary battery control positions.

Here's a similar picture of sister-ship HMS Superb berthed in Constantinople in 1918, looking as she does in "The Grand Fleet".



EDIT: And a nice view of successor St. Vincent-class member HMS Collingwood;

Another image found; was looking through my copy of "British Capital Ships 1873-1946" by noted marine artist Ian Marshall and spotted this.

HMS Temeraire, 1920


From what I can gather, most of the improved Dreadnoughts (as opposed to Super-Dreadnoughts) were sent to the Mediterranean to support the final push against Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire. Good old Arthur Marder is rather vague on the subject, so I'm trawling the Naval Record Society publications for more info on my beloved 12" ships.



Oh ho, and yet another picture of Temeraire - this one from 1919 and an even clearer image of what can only be assumed to be secondary battery control positions.
