HMS. RAMSEY

Under the command of Cdr Harry Raby RNR. HMS Ramsey was an Admiralty armed boarding steamer and was assigned to the Grand Fleet. Its duties were to intercept board and search neutral vessels in order to maintain the British naval blockade of Germany. On the 8th August she intercepted a steamship flying the Russian flag (Meteor), The Ramsey signalled the stranger to stop, and closed to about 80yds to lower a boat, when the German ensign was hoisted by the Meteor and attacked with gunfire and torpedoes at point blank range. The Ramsey badly damaged sank in three minutes. 53 members of the ships company were killed in the action including her captain Cdr Harry Raby. 46 survivors were picked up by the Meteor and held as POWs until the next day when Meteor was herself intercepted by superior British forces having transferred her prisoners to neutral ships was then scuttled. The surviving members of Ramsey's crew returned home in HMS Undaunted.
