One of the most important of the celebrated ‘Log’ series of Edwardian naval commissions as this book concerns the Russo-Japanese War of 1904/1905. HMS ANDROMEDA was a First-Class Cruiser built in 1897 and during this, her 1904-1906 commission, she was under the command of Captain Robert Nelson Ommanney and her commander was Commander Philip H. Colomb. On the 1st March 1904 the cruiser left Portsmouth bound for the China station. Shortly after her arrival she visited Port Arthur with supplies and this was immediately after the Russians had surrendered to the Japanese. ANDROMEDA’S medical team provided assistance to the wounded and to the refugees at that port. They witnessed the arrival of the Russian Baltic Fleet on the China station, and the author provides account of the Battle of the Japan Sea and the success of Admiral Togo. The cruiser went on to visit Japan and celebrated the renewing of the Anglo-Japanese Alliance. Photographs include vessels sunk at Port Arthur, survivors of a Russian destroyer aboard a British warship, and British sailors ashore at Tokyo and Yokohama. The cruiser visited various other ports around Japan and China before returning home to Spithead in June 1906 to pay off. Six ratings were lost during the commission, two drowned, two died of fever, one of meningitis, and one of pneumonia. The cruiser became the training ship POWERFUL II in 1913, IMPREGNABLE II in 1919, and DEFIANCE in 1931. She survived until 1956 when she was broken up in Belgium.
