The following is a description as it appeared in The Speher: 'November in the Channel; A modern cruiser in South-Westerly Weather.' 'The later cruisers with their aircraft hangars bulking out to port and starboard present a built-up appearance greatly in contrast to the slim lines of the older cruisers of fifteen or twenty years ago. A description of the work of the bigger cruisers in conjunction with the battleships and when working independently is described on pages 210-211 of this issue.
