  • The dreadnought Admirante Latorre was launched at Armstrong's Elswick yard in England, United Kingdom. Intended for the Chilean Navy, when war broke out in Aug 1914 the as yet unfinished ship was requisitioned by the Royal Navy and commissioned as HMS Canada. Canada was reckoned among the most effective units of the Grand Fleet, with which she served without damage, at the Battle of Jutland. Refitted in Apr 1920, she was at last returned to Chile. In 1929-31 she was extensively modernised at Davenport, England, United Kingdom; receiving oil-burning machinery, anti-torpedo bulges and an anti-aircraft armament. Following the Japanese attack on the US Base at Pearl Harbor, Territory of Hawaii in Dec 1941, the USA offered to purchase the veteran battleship from Chile but this was refused, and she remained the Chilean Navy's flagship until Oct 1958. ww2dbase [AC]

Famous WW2 Quote
"You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival."

Winston Churchill
