Line Ahead - HMS Ariadne
HMS Ariadne Victorian Royal Navy Cruiser Painting Art Print by Marine Artist Roger H. Middlebrook GAvA
The power and elegance of the Royal Navy in the Victorian era is a sight never to be seen again. With a doctrine of being twice the size and power of its closest rival, Britain’s naval power went undisputed for nearly a century. Key to Empire and its associated trade routes were the many class of cruisers. With their ram bows and stunning colours these cruisers, such as HMS Ariadne seen leading the way, were the workhorses of all navies until the end of WWII.
