depicting the family crest of the Cochrane family, with threaded barrel mounts behind, -- 10in. (25.5cm.) diam

One of four Warrior Class ships ordered in 1903-4, they displaced some 13,500 tons, but were effectively obsolete after the 1906 introduction of Dreadnought. Cochrane was never-the-less assigned to the Grand Fleet in 1914 and served at Jutland - albeit without firing a shot. On 14th November 1918 she was stranded in the Mersey whilst under pilot and broke her back.
