Haze Gray Mystery Picture #127 Answer


Can You Identify This Ship?

This is the cruiser HMS Raleigh, wrecked at Point Armour, Labrador, Canada.

Raleigh was completed in 1921 as the third Cavendish class cruiser, designed as a raider-hunter for distant service. She was barely more than a year old when she steamed into a thick fog in the Belleisle Strait and stranded on Point Armour, becoming a total loss. In this view she has been stripped of much of her equipment, including much of her superstructure, all guns, and her forward funnel. The wreck was blown up in 1927.
