I forgot to mention, the 14in the KGVs were I think buit-up guns and might not have been accomodated in the old turrets, while the Canada's were wire-bound and would be a better fit.

Remember the Canada already had 14 inch guns in virtually the same turret. In any case there would have been plenty of 13.5 in ammo around after WW1, including plenty of the excellent 'Greenboy' projectiles, hopefully which would have already well distributed throughout the empire. Replacing Tigers ...

This man has left a HUGE gap to fill. Much of Thailand's future will be shaped by the fall-out of this sad day.

One can only consider this monumental contribution almost as an act of love. I have long been moved by the Polish epic struggle for freedom and autonomy as one of history's great sagas. This thread from an aviation point of view does it great justice. Polish aviation has displayed great originality,...

Brilliant work GD! In 1914-15 the KGV class had 3 inch AA guns installed on the Quarterdecks. In 1915-16 the torpedo nets were removed.
