The Battle of Coronel and the battle of the Falklands in Naval Art prints of the First World war naval battle between The German Armoured Cruisers Scharnhorst, Gneisenau, Nurnberg and Leipzig against the British Armoured cruisers HMS Good Hope, Monmouth and HMS Glasgow. These Naval art prints by leading Naval Historical artists, Randall Wilson, Robert Taylor and W L Wylie available direct from Cranston Fine Arts

At the outbreak of World War I, Germany's East Asiatic squadron, consisting of two large armoured cruisers and three light cruisers under the command of Vice Admiral Graf Spee, travelled from their base at Tsingtao in northern China, across the western Pacific to the coast of Chile. On 1st November they were intercepted off the Chilean port of Coronel by a British squadron where, enjoying a large advantage in firepower, the encounter ended with a resounding victory for Admiral Graf Spee. The British Admiralty reacted swiftly, despatching a powerful naval force to the South Atlantic to confront the German squadron, and on 9th December battle commenced some 120 miles south west of the Falkland Islands. Outnumbered, outgunned, and outpaced by the British force, the Battle of the Falklands was over by nightfall. Von Spee and the entire crew of his flagship Scharnhorst perished, and with Leipzig, Nurnberg and Gneisenau also sunk, the East Asiatic Squadron was routed. Only Dresden escaped and when she was scuttled in Chilean waters four months later, the East Asiatic Squadron ceased to exist.

The British squadron under Admiral Sir Christopher Cradock consisted of two armoured cruisers HMS Good hope and HMS Monmouth, light cruiser HMS Glasgow and an armed merchant cruiser. Both HMS Good hope and HMS Monmouth were sunk, Admiral Cradock went down with his ship HMS Good hope.

The Opening Of The Action Between The Kent And The Nurnberg Off The Falkalnd Islands.


The Opening Of The Action Between The Kent And The Nurnberg Off The Falkalnd Islands.

The Kent began the engagement with Admiral Von Spees fleet by opening fire on the Nurnberg at a range of 11,000 yards-nearly six and a half miles. A fight at full speed was very soon in progress, and both vessels showed good shooting. But by a combination of fine marksmanship and good luck of the first shells fired by the Kent struck the Nurnberg square in the stern, disabling the after guns affecting the enemys speed and power of manoeuvring. The guns of the Nurnberg fired more rapidly than those of the Kent, however, and shells fell all round the British cruiser. Her silk ensign was shot to ribbons, and the foretopmast was carried away.

After Filling Her Bunkers The Kent Once More Searched For The Dresden.


After Filling Her Bunkers The Kent Once More Searched For The Dresden.

After Sir Frederick Sturdees victory over Admiral von Spee, off the Falkland Islands, on December 8th 1914, the cruiser Dresden remained the sole representative of the regular German Navy on the high seas, and hid amongst the innumerable islands off the Chilean coast of South America. The scattered squadron in search of her was under the orders of Captain John Luce, of H.M.S. Glasgow, and included among other vessels the armoured cruiser Kent (Captain John D. Allen) and the armed liner Orama (Captain John R Seagrave). On March 4th 1915, the Kent received a wireless message from the Glasgow, telling her that if she proceeded to a certain port she might come across Dresden. For a few days she hunted in vain, but at daybreak on March 8th caught sight of her. The Kent sped as hard as she could, but the Dresden was a faster ship, and night came on without the British ship being able to get within range. The Kent was now running short of coal, and spent the next day and night filling he.........

The Canopus opening fire on Admiral Graf Von Spees Fleet from behind a tongue of land at the Falklands Islands.


The Canopus opening fire on Admiral Graf Von Spees Fleet from behind a tongue of land at the Falklands Islands.

When the fleet of Admiral Graf von Spee was about six miles off the Falkland Islands, and was rushing unawares into a deadly trap, the Canopus opened fire at the leading ships with her 12-inch guns from behind a tongue of land, which concealed her position. The enemy thereupon altered their course, turning slightly away. Soon afterwards, when as it seemed, they had detected the tripod masts of the great British cruisers behind the hills, they suddenly made a half turn to starboard.
