    Dear Cross,

    I am supprised about this from the HMS Tiger,

    the Posts of this, on the next website :

    http://alltheworldsbattlecruisers.yuku. ... reply-4209

    it's mostly explained in global visions

    Facts:

    The Battle of Jutland: HMS Tiger was damaged,
    (with the same Construction) HMS Prinsess Royal was sunk, little body-Armour...

    In the period 1920 - 1924 : HMS Tiger
    in reserve, used as Sea-training ship......afther that, the Machinery demands her status ....

    From 1924 till end of the 1920's : HMS Tiger
    was used as Floating Artillery school...... worn out Guns ....

    Taking that old ship on age ?

    Also in 1932 the Dutch navy had a devise for a great strong fleet in Indonesia, to mutch idea's..

    Maby it was only a message to asking the Royal Navy

    From both sides of the navy's, there is no long information about the possibly take-over
    , in the History of HMS Tiger


    greets,


    Laurens

    started a topic Dutch interest in HMS Tiger

    Dutch interest in HMS Tiger

    On another site relating to the "Victory at Sea", I saw a note that the Dutch wanted to buy this ship when she decommissioned in 1932.

    On the site "All the World's Battlecruisers" there was a write up of the Lion and Princess Royal saying that these two were offered to Brazil, Chile, the Netherlands and others, but that only Siam (Thailand) showed any interest.

    Does anyone here know of any feelers the Dutch made about Tiger, or is it that "We don't want the older ships, but we'll take Tiger"?

    Thanks in advance.
