3 FRASER, Edward Londons of the British Fleet : How they faced the Enemy on the Day of Battle and What their Story Means for Us To-Day. First Edition
John Lane The Bodley Head, London / New York, 1908, 
FRASER, Edward. The Londons of the British Fleet : How they faced the Enemyon the Day of Battle and What their Story Means for Us To-Day. With 8 Illu strations in Colour and 18 in Black and White. London : John Lane, The Bodley Head, / New York : John Lane Company, MCMVIII. [1908]. First Edition. Pp(6),[vii]-xiv,(2),[1]-455, colour frontispiece + 19 leaves of plates. 8vo, green cloth, t.e.g., gilt lettering and decorations on front and spine. A discussion of Royal Navy ships bearing the name London. Beginning with an examination of the great city's relation to the navy, the author considers vessels ranging from Cromwell's London launched in 1656 to the Edwardian battleship of that name, the latter being extensively illustrated in the book."The interest attaching to the Londons of the British Fleet is twofold. Fi rst, there is the interest which belongs to the name itself, because of itsdirect connection with the capital of the Empire, and as that of a famous group of men-of-war of the Royal Navy. The name, indeed, has a claim of itsown on our regard ; instinct with noble and inspiring traditions and many illustrious memories. The man-of-war name London belongs to a set of " territorial " names if the term be permissible that can boast a notable ancestry, and were the first favourites with the hard-fighting tars of the "Old Navy" from the days of Blake to the days of Rodney, when Nelson was a young post-captain. The associations of such names can be made to have a real and a practical use nowadays. They undoubtedly help in stimulating our general interest in the Royal Navy, and in keeping before us the all-important fact, how "it is on the Navy, under the good Providence of God, that our Wealth, Prosperity, and Peace depend." What the Navy means to the nation can hardly be put more forcibly, indeed, than it has been put by a former First Lord of the Admiralty in the House of Lords on the i8th of March in this very year : "I believe that our command of the sea is a necessity to this country, and that it is absolutely essential we should hold that command. Our position as a country is very different from that of other countries. . . . Wehave to bring everything from across the sea. We have to bring our food to our people across the sea, we have to bring our raw material for our manuf actures across the sea, and we have to send our manufactures and other exports again across the sea. The great dominions of the King beyond the sea were gained by us through our power on the sea, and it is by the sea that we can defend both them and ourselves. . . . The command of the sea is absolutely necessary for us." Secondly, the narrative of events in the careers of the Londons of the British Fleet would seem to be pointedly of interest at the present time, when that supremacy at sea, vital to the existence of theBritish Empire, has been openly challenged, if not indeed menaced, from ab road. It records, as a plain warning, what happened twice to Great Britain in war : once, when readiness to believe any story from abroad which would enable money to be kept back from the fleet lulled those responsible for the national welfare into a sense of false security ; again, when public heedlessness, and party politics, and false ideas of economy, had allowed the Navy in time of peace to fall below our acknowledged standard of numerical superiority over possible enemies. For that, on the first occasion, the penalty was national disgrace and humiliation, and the capture and destruction,as they lay at anchor within England's principal naval port of the time, o f a number of our best men-of-war. On the second occasion, Great Britain paid the price in the loss of half her then existing Colonial Empire ; and inthe circumstances the nation was fortunate to get off so lightly. What may not be the price of an unsuccessful naval war for the British Empire next time ?" - from the Preface. Chapters: 1. London and the Royal Navy; 2. Why Cromwell Chose the Name; . A Visit to our First London; 4. How the City Built the Loyall London; 5. The Loyall London Goes to Sea; 6. The Loyall London Under Fire:—"The St. James's Day Fight"; 7. The Tragedy of the Medway Raid; 8. On Board the London at Solebay; 9. With Prince Rupert in the North Sea; 10. In "Rotten Row":—When Charles the Second was King; 11.
