Launch Party for HMS Zulu

Launch Party for HMS Zulu

Here we see the launch party for the Tribal class destroyer HMS Zulu, at Hawthorn Leslie's yard at Hebburn on the Tyne on Thursday 16 September 1909. The launch didn't go entirely to plan, as the Zulu rushed across the Tyne quicker than expected and rammed the opposite bank!
