April 23rd, 2009


As a gunnery training ship IRON DUKE actually retained six of her 13.5 inch guns and some of her 6 inch. ISTR she was also used for trials and at one stage mounted twin 4 inch BD mounting that was the prototype for the 4.5 inch BD.

CENTURION lost her all her guns as a target ship.

There was even an Iron Duke, the Iron Duke, existing in September, 1939, but without its guns.
