Dear friends:

Mark Chirnside and I are happy to announce the availability of a new book that we wrote dealing with the collision between HMS Hawke and RMS Olympic in the Solent back in 1911. It is called, The Sting of the Hawke: Collision in the Solent, and can be purchased directly at: http://www.createspace.com/5066088.

For the first time, the circumstances leading up to the collision that took place on 20 September 1911 is objectively analyzed and presented, including what happened the moments before and immediately after the collision, and the conflicting claims made by both sides. We also look at the role of adverse hydrodynamic interaction and the contributory circumstances leading up to a situation that caught both sides by surprise.

More details about the book and can be found on my website at: StingOfHawke,
and also on Mark Chirnside’s Reception Room site at: Mark Chirnside's Reception Room: Olympic, Titanic & Britannic: The Sting of the Hawke.
We also have created a preview page here: Mark Chirnside's Reception Room: Olympic, Titanic & Britannic: The Sting of the Hawke Preview.


Best regards,

Samuel Halpern

Sam -- many thanks for the announcement. One question I need to ask. Is there much discussion of the actions surrounding the Trinity House Pilot -- George William Bowyer?

He very rarely mentions this episode in his autobiography. Hence my reasons for asking.

This is a bit late, but does your book talk about whether or not WSL had to pay to repair the Hawke?
