Tho The German submarines, however, v-re minimizing the risks of detec- .trawler was hit full and squarely, in a moment she was spouting smoke and flames were leaping in her. Ii the Aboukir and Hogue had been compelled to sink without chance of retaliation, the Creasy at any rate went under with her teeth bared and, her guns barking furiously. MANY YEARS tiou as far as ingenuity could encom- pass it The whole troubled surface of the sea, viewed from the decks of tlio Aboukir, Cressy aud Hogue, up- I peared to be free from hostile VGS-. sels. Only two craft were visible; "one English, the other flying the Dutch I j flag. Very peaceable they looked, too. I The Englishman had his out bua- I'Uy fishing; tho "Dutchman" was .a [sailing trawler, and his business was i: obviously fish, although no nets were was the Impression she made. But 'how different and diabolic bar object was! Behind her broad.-hull, screened completely frcur observation, lay the deadly company of German submar- "submarine field" that was 'j shortly to wreak such havoc .among i the three majestic unsuspecting (hut always vigilant) British warship's. I The trawler was within a. thousand yards of the Aboukir, Cressy, and toe {Hogue, and at that distance the war- i snips offered a fair mark to the skulk- ing submarines. vessrfs were about a couple of hundred yards apart, steaming at eight and the submarines had plenty of leisure to determine the distances and make tho numerous calculations necessary for their torpedoes to speed on their death-dealing voyage. And all the time the cruisers were in ignorance of how near death was to them. It was the fate of the Aboukir which first revealed the closeness of the enemy. A heavy explosion boomed out, and the two other cruisers star- ing at the sister ship saw hsr stagger, saw clouds of white steam issuing j from her grey hulk, saw the four i funnels beginning to 'belch volumes of i smoke, and almost before the watch- j ing men had recovered from the shock j and surprise, they saw her heel over. The single blow" had been fatal. But discipline prevailed on the Aboukir even ia these appdling mo- ments. It is related how all the crew on deck mustered and in their places, awaiting the- order to go overboard from 'the side. They were steady, Icalm, great, un- dying traditions of the. service to which they belonged. Chairs and tables and wooden'art- icles of every description were flung I into the water for the hold on ,1 by when they, were battling -with the 'waves. The Cressy and'''the Hogue, which were creeping uiftb stand by 'j their mortally wounded sister, did the Isame thing. Messes were, ransacked i for objects that would float, and on i both ships the officers and men work- ed fiercely to help the Aboukir -men 'faced with the prospect :of drowning. i As the swimming sailors were ap- i proached they were told to cling to these articles until the boats cold be I lowered, and continuously the wire- i less operators were methodically flash- ing the news through the air. And then the Hogue was torpedoed. As with the Cressy, -her decks had been cleared for action, -and while some of her crew ware detailed for rescue "rork, others were sweeping the sea for signs of the enemy who had wrought such terrible damage, They could perceive nothing of him, j hut they were soon to know was fatally active. A second dull explosion, :and the Cressy saw the Hogue shiver and be- gin to nestle into the waves-In a path- etic, helpless manner, similar to. the Aboukir. The Cressy was 'stationary, (lowering her boats withvall possible speed, and she was a simple mark for the submarines. The latter had now become impu- dently courageous. on the Creasy saw one leave 'the shelter of the "Dutch" trawler and fide to with- in four'hundred yards of the solitary remaining ship. Her courage was the cause of her undoing; she had made no allowance for the steadiness .-of Bri- tish gunnery or" its deadly accuracy. She just wanted to make absolutely sure of her 'target, and she'.-came jauntily- on, little realizing her peril. Her periscope poked abov-e the-rest- less 'waves on the port the warship. Perhaps it was.as big as a I cruet, perhaps smaller. And U was a mark, something tangible for the Cressy's guns .to aim .to.fllt. >It was the Chief Gunner who, attend- ed to this matter, and a 12- pounder. less than a'minute he fire'd three shots, two which yfevQ I effective, and the incautious submar- jine disappeared in a swirl'of-.foam, [leaving a couple of her crew franti- cally swimming on the surface. Next the Chief Gunner rsr.ta .the starboard, and there he marines which were cruising right In amongst the dead and Hying British seamen. There are some who declare that the Germans stepped on-the con- ning towers and laughed .callously at .their desperate struggles, 'C'V-'-' One cf these submarines managed to hit the Cressy, but the.blow.was not vital, and she maintained an even keel. Another torpedo tearing wards the ship, only to pals harmless- ly beneath her stern, and then third and fatal engine ef destruction 'arrived Just as the Chief Gunner had got ihls' range. Before he could .dis- charge big gun the third torpedo had the Cressy biow. Ittilt and wrecked the engine room. The heart ot the warship ed; she began slowly to slide beneath the wavea.
